Tomoyuki Sugiyama

TOMOYUKI SUGIYAMA
President, Doctor of Engineering/Digital Hollywood

Whether battling Japanese bureaucracy for recognition of digital arts as college-worthy curriculum, or working through countless forums, associations and councils, or simply equipping classrooms with refrigerators for midnight oil-burning students, Sugiyama-san is a tireless champion of CG in Japan. He founded Digital Hollywood in 1994, after returning from a 3-year tenure at MIT’s Media Lab armed with a firm vision of a networked digital society. The school, now a certified university, is a major source of CG talent for Japan’s creative industry.
