An official trailer has just been released for Otomo Katsuhiro’s upcoming animated film “Short Piece”, an omnibus featuring 4 short films, done in the format of Otomo’s earlier film Memories perhaps.
The four directors are Otomo himself, Morita Shuhei (Kakurenbo, Freedom Project), Hiroaki Ando (co-director of Tekkon Kinkreet) and Hajime Katoki (mecha designer for Gundam, Super Robot Wars, Virtua On, Patlabor and tons of other stuff.)
Koji Morimoto has also been credited on the official page as the director of the film’s opening sequence. Gotta be good !
Really looking forward to this one. I haven’t seen any of Morita-san’s work since working under him on Freedom (here’s an interview with him and 2 of my ex-colleagues Sakamoto-san and Kanemoto-san), nor Ando-san ( I still have his autographed Tekkon Kinkreet dvd boxset somewhere. ), so it’s great to see them working together with Otomo again.
I’ll try to update this page as and when new information comes up on the official page here.
