In fact, it is a picture of a famous Japanese singer who sang in an all girl pop group named SPEED during the mid to late 90s. Her name is Hiroko Shimabukuro. Hiro for short. Unfortunately, they disbanded several years ago. I recently found out they are back together and singing as SPEED. Freelance Union Article: 5 Tips for Preventing Procrastination.

Japanese Storyboard Template (UNFINISHED)

I've been tinkering around with this little doodad for a while now. It's based on the storyboard format from the FLCL Storyboard Book by Gainax Animation Studios. This template is not exactly like theirs but, it's close. You can use it if you want to. If you're into storyboarding how the Japanese do it this should be self explanatory. If not, you'll have to look it up for yourself. I had to.

Yes, this was created in Adobe Flash 5.5. And, it's not done yet. There's some tweaks I'd still like to do. Unfortunately, I could not upload the .fla file to blogger. That would have been a great asset to anyone wanting to use the actual file to its fullest potential. Later, I may show some screen grabs of how it works so if you have Adobe or Macromedia Flash installed on your computer you can create this file yourself.
