Enroll as a Hatsune Miku Film Major in Tokyo this September

If you've ever dreamed of making your own Hatsune Miku songs and videos but lack the abilities to bring your creative vision into (virtual) reality, you are in luck: a 6-month course dedicated to just that is being offered by an accredited* institution!

The downside is that you must arranged to live in Tokyo for half a year and enroll at Digital Hollywood University (Go Tentacles!)

Dubbed "HATSUNE MIKU, Loves Creator", the intensive 6-month course at DHU purports to give students hands-on experience and all the training they need to become Vocaloid music producers. In the course of study, students will study basic computer animation and receive training in how to work with the Vocaloid software itself.

At the end of the course, students will be expected to unveil a full graduation project similar to something like this:

This course is being offered as a part of Digital Hollywood's new "Hatsune Miku Film Major", and while DHU does offer an exchange program for its degrees, this course will only be offered in Japanese.

...which is a pity. I would love to add Digital Hollywood University and/or "Hatsune Miku Film Major" to my CV.

*Yup, it's a real university
