Department of Performing ArtsProduction Course

Utilizing the most advanced technology, create entertainment which has never been seen before and aim for the world stage
The ability required for this field is the magic to change any atmosphere into entertainment. Let’s say you take a large forest as a stage and turn it into a space for entertainment using the latest technology and techniques such as projection mapping as well as drone and robot technology. To enable students to acquire these techniques, we plan to implement a curriculum established by the global multimedia entertainment studio the Moment Factory. Of course, we also offer expertise which Yoshimoto Kogyo has developed over many years including basic direction/production techniques of concert/performance production such as audio, lighting, stage setting, scenic design, video production, costumes and makeup. Our aim is to develop talent working in production who can be successful on an international level with new types of expressive abilities. Fusing tradition and innovation, we offer a high level entertainment production training which has never been seen before in Asia.
3 features of PRODUCTION course
Enjoy the year round carnival, the “Great All-island Festival”
The Great All-island Festival attracts entertainment events and works from all around the world, and it serves as our school festival. It is literally held over the entire islands of Okinawa during the course of the whole year. This great festival gives students opportunities to try their ideas for work from planning to production and management, and allows them to experience the true charm of live performance entertainment.
Have fun while working
Yoshimoto Kogyo offers activities which allow students to experience the importance of entertaining both yourself and others. Yoshimoto Kogyo is a general contents company with 6,000 performers and dealing in theater management nationwide, TV program production, digital contents, and books/DVD planning as well as an advocator of Cool Japan. Therefore, we can provide support for fun production activities.
Learn and experience from the world’s forefront
Another feature of this course is that students can learn and experience world class technology. We plan to implement programs in which students can learn from the world’s forefront such as a program with the multimedia entertainment studio the Moment Factory which is a global leader in experimental digital technology.
