About PES (Peace Eco Smile) project:
In 2013, TMSM started a new collaboration project, “NEXT GENERATION – PES (Peace Eco Smile) – CROSS COLLABORATION,” to communicate its message globally through producing a full animation film with leading directors and various kinds of collaborations in organic connections with other people, things, and venues.
Can we together create “the future that everyone wants” to change ideas about mass consumption and economic efficiency today? The energy to do this is actually inside human hearts. The source for putting it in motion is music and this is why PES is making music videos along with a new animation film.
The power of anime and music can cross over barriers of language and nation, creating understanding between diverse cultures and civilizations, giving us courage and healing. It is the energy of miracles.
PES(Peace Eco Smile) is this new energy, wishing to be the path towards a future we can create at any time. This output is not only introduced on website or youtube, but is communicated through real-world events. This is to directly connect with various people in order to share and deliver the message of amusement and joy through organic joint participation. Through, J-POP Summit, TMSM hopes to formulate new relationships in the radical openness environment.
