A stopwatch specialized for making Japanese Anime production is here.
The frame rate for Japanese animation is 24 frames per second, where the standard is 30 frames per second. Because of this standard, normal stop watches are not suitable for recording timing for Japanese animations. The only exception being stop watches handcrafted for just this purpose, which where manufactured in short quantities in 1993 by Murata Kazuya who at the time was assistant director at STUDIO Ghibli, working on "Umi ga Kikoeru"(Ocean Waves). JAniCA Stopwatch is a digital replica version.
Due to strong demand for the animation industry, we have recreated this device as an iPhone App, in joint production with JAniCA. Splitting a second into 24 intervals, 6 seconds per lap which is standard for time sheets in Japan, customized for Japanese Anime production. It can also be used for standard movie making in 30 frames per second as well. The analog dial clock from the original clock has been digitally recreated, curtsy of Mr. Murata, the creator of the original analog version.
