Dragon Ball GT Main Staff Credits


脚本Scenario
A scenario writer is responsible for the script of a specific episode, most notably including the character and narration dialogue. These writers are supervised by the series organizer and director to ensure that the episodes scenario fits within the overall scope of the series plot. An episode’s script is often revised numerous times before it is finalized and handed over to the episode director to begin work on the animation process.

美術Art (Director)
The art director creates “art boards” with illustrations of the major points and locations in the script, defining the setting, colors, and other various details on how a scene should look on screen. They also create detailed “model packs” for the background artists and key animators to work from. The background artists also receive “art boards” from the art director, which contain rough background sketches detailing how the backgrounds should look.

作画監督Animation Supervisor
The animation supervisor is the person who oversees, checks, and corrects the key animators’ drawings. The corrections can be for many reasons but are most often to bring the characters “on model” so that they more accurately reflect the original character designs. They often work closely with the Chief Animator and Chief Designer, but overall, the final look of the episode hinges on the artistic abilities of the animation supervisor.

絵コンテStoryboard
The term ekonte (絵コンテ) is a combination of the Japanese words for “picture” and “continuity board”, but is typically referred to using the generic English animation term “storyboard”. Storyboards are sequential drawings detailing the major scenes of the series and include information about dialogue, music, camera work. They serve as a basis for the animators to create their layouts and key drawings. Individual episode directors draw their own storyboards, which act as the visual script for the episode, under the guidance of the series director. The use of a separate storyboard artist credit does occur when the episode director is strapped for time or otherwise a bad artist.

演出(Episode) Director
The director, often referred to as the episode director, is one of the most difficult and most important jobs in the production process of a single episode. They are the go-between for the series director and the rest of the staff. They are responsible for checking and supervising the show throughout the production, from initial story to the final released product, and in many cases, have almost total control over it. They typically check the animation drawings as they are being worked on, set up each scene before it goes to photography and supervises the sound, voice recordings, and all of the editing, amongst many other jobs.
