Matsuzo Machida Studio Wild Rose Goals. Grow To Bring Back Shadow Hearts

Matsuzo Machida went to twitter to give fans the goals of him and his studio Wildrose. He did this when the studio was announced earlier this year but for those who wanted a full report we do get a lengthy response as to what Machida and the group are aiming to be.

Machida had his hand in the Shadow Hearts series from writer to director in covenant. So for most fans we hope he does well but we also hope as he prospers it means the chance for us to see Shadow Hearts return grows as well. Machida if yo read this I hope you the best. I hope team the best and I hope Maoka the best. And congrats On Shadow Hearts 18th  Anniversary the first one. Thank you .

Here is the twitter link and if you want to show the studio and Machdia the love.

If you want to read it check it out below.  At the very bottom you can see a new picture of Alice and Yuri that was done.

It has been about three months since i started the company in the last spring of Heisei. In the meantime, I had the opportunity to meet a variety of people, regardless of the industry, and i was like, “Did you finally make it?” What kind of company? Why did you start a company?

Because there were many things asked, this time I think I’ll write a little bit about that side in this blog.

The mystery of studio Wild Rose that everyone wants to know!?

First of all, Studio WildRose is such a company.

・A company that produces a variety of entertainment around stories and pictures.

・A company that is comfortable with the creators (writing and drawing).

A company where creators can make things forever.

Even grandpa and grandma can work, become senior Ghibli in the game industry, senior PIXAR.

It is a company that can honestly express what we want to convey to our users, especially children, even though they are said to have an old sense of old sense and that they are such a bad-ass person.

A company with cats.

The workplace is always full of healing and thrill, because we respect the basic right to nyan and allow freedom of nyan theory.

A company that has nothing to do with crowded trains.

I’m the king of the country because I’m on a crowded train, so I’ll eventually rent an office where employees gather, but i’m still working in soho environment for a while.

A company with a full scouting system.

Therefore, we will not reply even if you apply. By the way, if i describe the qualification to join the company, the age is 45 years or older. It is a company where people who have a lot of hard work and hard work with rich life experience, have struggled and hurt, but still love to make things. Single mothers and single fathers after child-rearing are also welcome.

The comeback team that was away from the site for a while is also welcome.

・The salary cannot be so high, but it is not cheap a decent company.

There is no silly drinking party to care about, and there is no need for misunderstood communication skills that a high-minded system respects.

A company that values one sentence and one picture created by each employee.

A company that strives diligently every day to meet the expectations of fans all over the world.

And, it is a company which returns the favor to the people when it is profitable. ……

And, well, this is the ideal to go practice machida. It’s important to make money to do what you want to do, but it’s second, and it’s more about the noble philosophy and the good cause, the more familiar and more common, and the goal of sincerely facing life is more enjoyable. The most important thing is to make it a company that can work energetically forever in the future when the labor force itself ages due to the declining birthrate.

(2) Why did you decide to create Studio WildRose? To do what you want to do. The biggest reason is not to be selfish, but to live as if you want to. Because freedom is obtained, the responsibility which accompanies it is shouldered. I’ll steer my life by myself.

It is the lyrics of Miyuki Nakajima’s masterpiece “Sofune”.

Also, I wanted a place where I could have fun making things with people I wanted to work with.

What kind of company would you like to make Studio WildRose in the future?

As I mentioned earlier, it is a company that can make things no matter how old you are. “Over there, what are we going to make next?

It’s a company that’s excited by fans.

We will disseminate original content in a variety of genres, not just games. And, young people are adopted there for the first time when the company comes to turn by the grandfather and the grandmother. I want you to make things freely in the environment that we prepared freely. I want you to inherit the enjoyment of making things.

I’m happy if I can do it that way.

And, very little supplement about work. Studio Wildrose does not have the ability to mass produce text or illustrations. I’ll leave that to a large company with a large number of people. Instead, I believe that it can be of considerable help in terms of composition and design, such as the concept of the project and the story structure, what kind of story is suitable for this game, and how it is interesting to develop it.

Of course, if machida is the amount that one person can write, I will write the scenario willingly. In addition, the development of SNS recently obscured the barrier between professional and amateur writers and illustrators, and in some cases, we have seen the appearance of being bought at a very low price. It is very unfortunate. In such a situation, I am always thinking about what the sentences I really need are and what art is really needed, and i am focused on building together how to come up with the color and concept of the product.

I try not to treat what is said to the creators who are capable of doing anything just to make them draw and write.

Above, I have beaten writing while thinking about the company.

Thank you very much for reading to the end. Studio Wild Rose will continue to be a one-wheeled wild rose that will be swayed in a fluffy style at the edge of the industry.

Please watch the flowering of the bud warmly.

Oddly enough, shadow hearts were born on the 18th anniversary of their birth. Matsuzo Machida

 平成最後の春に会社を立ち上げてから三ヶ月ほど経ちました。

 その間、業界を問わず色々な方と会う機会がありまして「ついに作ったか!」とか「どんな会社?」「どうして会社を作ったの?」などなど訊かれる事が多かったので、今回は本ブログでその辺のことについてちょこっと書いてみようかと思います。

 みんなが知りたいスタジオワイルドローズの謎!?

①まず最初に、スタジオワイルドローズとはこんな会社です

・物語と絵を軸に様々なエンターテイメントの物作りをする会社。

・作り手(物書き、絵描き)に居心地の良い会社。

・クリエイターたちがいつまでも物作りをして行ける会社。

 おじいちゃんおばあちゃんになっても働ける、ゲーム業界のシニアジブリ、シニアPIXARになります。

 センスが古い、あのじじいボケたな、とか言われながらも、自分たちが「ユーザー様(とくにこどもたち)に伝えたいこと」を正直に表現して行ける会社。

・猫がいる会社。

 基本的ニャン権を尊重し、ニャン論の自由を認めていますので、常に職場は癒しとスリルで満ち溢れています。

・満員電車とは無縁の会社。

 自分は満員電車にゃ乗らねーよ国の王様なので、いずれは社員が集まる事務所を借りるけど、まだしばらくはSOHO環境でみんなが働く会社です。

・完全スカウト制の会社。

 なので、ご応募いただいても返信致しません。

 ちなみに入社資格を記載しておきますと、年齢は45歳以上。人生経験の豊かな必死に仕事に打ち込み頑張ってきた、たくさん苦労し傷ついてきた、それでも物作りが大好きな人たちが入る会社です。子育て中、子育て終了後のシングルマザー、シングルファーザーも大歓迎。しばらく現場から離れていたカムバック組も大歓迎。

・給料はそんなに高くできないけど安くはないちゃんとした会社。

 気ばかり遣うくだらない飲み会はないし、意識高い系が尊ぶ勘違いコミュニケーション能力も必要ありません。

 社員一人一人が生み出す、一つの文章、一枚の絵を大切にする会社。

 全世界のファンの期待に応えるため毎日コツコツ努力をする会社。

 そして、儲かった時は世間様へ恩返しをする会社。

 ……と、まあ、こんな感じが町田の実践して行く理想です。

 やりたいことをやるための金儲けも大事だけど、そんなのは二の次で、崇高な理念とか立派な大義とかよりは、もっと身近でもっと庶民的な、人生を楽しく生きることに真摯に向き合う目標をかかげています。少子化で労働力自体が高齢化していくこれからの時代こそ、いつまでも元気に働いていける会社にするのが一番重要です。

②では、どうしてスタジオワイルドローズを創ろうと思ったか

 自分のしたいことをするため。身勝手にではなく、生きたいように生きるためと言うのが一番大きな理由です。自由を手にするからにはそれにともなう責任も背負う。自分の人生の舵取りは自分でする。中島みゆきさんの名曲「宙船」の歌詞ですね。

 それから、一緒に仕事をしたい人と楽しく物作りができる場所が欲しかったのも大きいかな。

③将来スタジオワイルドローズをどんな会社にしたいか

 先にも書きましたが、いくつになっても物作りのできる会社。

 「あそこ、次は何を作るんだろうね?」ってファンからワクワクされる会社。

 ゲームに限らず色々なジャンルでオリジナルのコンテンツを発信していきます。

 そして、おじいおばあで会社が回るようになったら、そこではじめて若い人たちを採用します。自分たちが用意した環境で自由にのびのびと物作りをしていって欲しい。物作りの楽しさを継承して行って欲しい。そんなふうにできたら幸せです。

 それと、仕事についての補足を少しだけ。

 スタジオワイルドローズには、テキストの大量生産やイラストの大量生産を行う能力はありません。そういうのは人数のそろった大手様にお任せします。そのかわり企画のコンセプトやストーリー構成など、このゲームにはどんな物語でどんな見せ方が合っているのか、どう展開させてゆくのが面白いか、などの構成や設計に関しての部分ではかなりのお力になれると考えています。もちろん、町田一人が執筆できる分量であれば喜んでシナリオを書かせていただきます。

 また、昨今SNSの発達でライターもイラストレーターもプロとアマチュアの垣根が曖昧になり、場合によっては酷く安い値段で買いたたかれている姿を目の当たりにしてきました。非常に残念なことです。そうした中にあって、自分は本当に必要な文章とは何か、本当に必要とされるアートとは何かを常に考え、どう商品のカラーやコンセプトを打ち出して行くのかを一緒に構築して行くことに重きを置いています。能力のあるクリエイターに言われたものを「ただ描かせる(書かせる)」だけの扱いはしないよう心掛けています。

 以上、会社について思いつくまま書き殴ってしまいました。

 最後まで読んでくださった方、本当にありがとうございます。

 スタジオワイルドローズは、これからも業界の端っこでフワフワ風に揺られる一輪の野バラでありつづけます。そのつぼみの開花する姿を、どうぞ、温かく見守ってやってください。

 奇しくも SHADOW HEARTS が生まれて18年目を迎えた日に。

 町田 松三
