Message from Kiyotaka Oshiyama

Although I would like to edit as many people’s work as possible, the number of pieces I can edit is limited whilst working on animation productions. That is why this service is only offered on an irregular basis. I will aim to edit at least 15 pieces during each service period, but the actual number will vary depending on my capacity.

If you were not selected but would still like your material to be edited, please use our Paid Editing Service. You can also view many of my edited materials by joining Atelier Durian.
