株式会社Live2Dでは2006年の創業以来、世界中で使われる技術、100年後にも残り続ける技術を目指して、映像技術「Live2D」の開発を行っております。 クリエイターと一緒に創り上げてきたこの「Live2D」という技術は、我々もひとりのクリエイターであることを忘れずに、ものづくりを楽しむ精神を大切にしながら育ててきました。 ゲーム表現では既に国内外で多数採用され高く評価頂いてきましたが、新たに長編アニメーション映画のプロジェクトがスタートし、アカデミー賞を取るという野望に向けても一歩近づくことができました。 『描きたいとおりに描き、動かしたいとおりに動かす』という夢に向かって、我々はこれからも精進し続けます。
