Freedom Screenplay + Art Book 01

Posted By yonghow on May 18th, 2008

In an earlier post last year titled Freedom Project concept art I expressed my longing for an art of Freedom book to be published after the completion of the series, and here it is now – well, sort of. FREEDOM SCENARIOS 0-3 is a collection of the screenplays from episode 0 ( The Prologue ) to episode 3, in between some very select pieces of concept art, as shown below.

Now I was just wondering how the publishing of the screenplays, rather than a comprehensive book on Freedom’s concept, background art, cover and poster illustrations ( there’s more than enough material to fill a nice, thick A4 size volume ) can allow fans to better appreciate the creative work that has gone into the series, Freedom been after all an animation series, a decided visual piece of work rather than literary. Go figure.

There’s also some additional background information on the Freedom Nissin Cup Noodle television commercials, interviews with director Morita Shuhei, and more. I guess we can expect Book 2, covering materials for the rest of the series from 4-7 to be published some time in the near future.

Update 121008 – Book 2 has been released ! Read more about it on this post, or grab the book here.

You can grab a copy of book 01 here.

Wow, that’s some really cool art in the book. The Eden Robotmachine’s looking really awesome.


Now that you’ve taken part in an animation production, and saw the fruits of your labour, how do you feel about this stint on Proj Freedom?


double – Thanks ! The robot looks pretty cool indeed, but its quite a bitch to animate and light as it has a thousand different moving parts, it was quite a nightmare actually.

one – I think I will write a post about my stint in Sunrise and work on Freedom. :]

Wow, these drawings are too cool! I am jealous that i cannot do such beautiful art. It reminds me alot of design art that i saw in China & Japan.
