Hello everyone. Long-time, no see. So, with a year out until the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Do you think that Japan and Tokyo will reference or present their unique anime and video game culture, i.e Sonic, Mario, Pokemon, Studio Ghibli etc.? 

They have to talk Japan's history from the Paleolithic era to the Jomon era to the Reiwa era.

Opening performance of the One Year to Go events a couple of weeks ago. Panasonic implemented some kind of new mapping/projection techniques which actually looked pretty amazing. Is this a sneak peak of what await us in 2020?

Tokyo should put on a fantastic Opening Ceremony on 24 July 2020

Opening ceremony of the Rugby World Cup. Probably a different team that the one in charge next year, but for being a simple ceremony it was actually nicely done (focused mostly on japanese folklore this time). It's a shame FIFA ceremonies are in such an embarassing absolute state the Rugby ones are doing a better job these last years.

Do FIFA do all their ceremonies in-house now? Only they’ve all felt very formulaic & similar for a few years.

I would say RWC Opening Ceremonies have been hitting a spectacular trend for the past few years, especially for something so low budget. But this Ceremony in particular was pretty great even amongst the recent one's.

The Rugby World Cup ceremony was fantastic- especially as it was a quick, 20 min ceremony conducted on the playing surface. Colorful, hi tech, fun. great music, easy to read and understand the motifs and concepts ...ceremony of the year for mine.
