Director Biography

Tsuneo Goda started his directing career with TV commercials.
Developing “Domo”, the character for NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation), led Goda into the field of animation. He established dwarf studios in 2003, whereby he became a creator of animation. Goda displays his talent not only in animation, but also in illustration and in books for children. His artistic philosophy is to visualize what he feels and experiences in daily life through puppet animation, in which even the unrealistic is possible.
His most notable character to date is “Domo”, whose TV series(2’×26 episodes) was broadcasted on the world’s most watched children’s channel, Nickelodeon in 2008. By now, it was aired in more than 170 regions worldwide.
While “Komaneko” series, which are one of his most outstanding works, are shown and highly praised at the various film festivals all over the world, “The Curious Kitty & Friends” participated the pilot season of Amazon Studios that launched in 2016 in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Japan.
His latest work is “Warm Hands”.
