Ross founded the UK Anime Network waaay back in 1995 and works in and around the anime world in his spare time.
Italian-French singer Dolche has created a new anime-inspired video to promote her latest song, Breathe In.
Collaborating with Californian studio Zozrus, the video animates dance moves sent in by fans across the world to create a truly cross-cultural collaboration.
From the Press Release: This anime inspired video for ‘Breathe In’ reminds us of this basic principle with simple calming movements and original choreography created with the help of many fans across the world who sent in their own ‘moves’. A professional dancer from NYC then put it all together, and Californian animators at Zozrus Studio translated the moves into anime characters. It is astonishing to remember that this was all produced and realised during full lockdown isolation.
Dolche originally envisaged the video concept as if someone was listening to ‘Breathe In’ whilst being stuck in a traffic jam. Her imagination took over: “What if we could just follow a flying bug and get out of our cars to dance together and breathe again? And what if three old wise Chinese ladies dressed in pink working jumpsuits showed us the secret movements to pull it together?” Crisalide Records creatives and the animators brought this crazy and wonderful idea to life. The resulting video is a fun and captivating anime that underscores the need for space, and calm.

Dolche's new album, Exotic Diorama, will be released in October.
