Batman As A Ninja Is Totally The Right Thing To Do

Ninja was a covert agent (but more like mercenary, really) in feudal Japan who have been depicted in numerous movies and TV series. On screens, ninja are often depicted as skilled, elusive, and stealthy force, who are often loaded with gadgets and does disappearing act. In some way, Batman is very similar to a ninja and therefore, it kind of make sense for Warner Bros. Japan to come up with an animated feature called Batman Ninja. Yep. That’s right. The Bat has gone Japanese. Though we are not sure if the Bat will be played by a Japanese version of Bruce Wayne, or it is just Wayne-san in medieval Japan, as a ninja.

Artist Show You How To Use A Power Drill To Create Interesting Animation

Stop-motion animations are impressive work of art that are tedious to produce. It is surely more difficult to make over the now common CGI animation, but Los Angeles-based curious maker/artist Federico Tobon managed to achieve a simple stop-motion sequence with just a handful of hand drawn images and a power drill. What he did was putting together a sequence of images he drew into a reel of sort and slapped it into the chuck of a power drill. By triggering the power drill, the once motionless series of hand drawn images come to live. Continue reading Artist Show You How To Use A Power Drill To Create Interesting Animation

Godzilla: Monster Planet To Release In November And We Can’t Hardly Wait

If you have not heard, there’s a new Godzilla movie, but this time round, it will be in animation form – Japanese anime, to be precise. Perhaps the most exciting part for fans of all things sci-fi/robots is, Izmojuki is involved in the production of the movie as the mechanic design assistance. The film, titled Godzilla: Monster Planet, is voiced by Mamoru Miyano, Kana Hanazawa, Tomokazu Sugita, Yuki Kaji, Junchi Suwabe, as well as Takahiro Sakurai – all whom I have no idea who they are. But who cares right? They will be just voice-acting and this being a Godzilla movie, Godzilla is what matters and obviously, those machines they will be turning out to deal with the radioactive monstrosity.

How they shoot is probably none of our business, but special effect specialist, The Mill, has came up with a brilliant solution that would help future car commercial making cost less and the tool it proposes is a car.

Johnny Express – An Animated Short Film About The Laziest Space Delivery Man

it has been a while since we last hit you guys up with short films and so here’s one that we think that’s worth every seconds of the five minutes of your life. titled ‘Johnny Express‘, the short sci-fi (yes, of course, it is sci-fi) follows a super lazy interplanetary delivery man on one of his delivery trip (who also used to be the Best Delivery Man Of 2150) and how he, due to his incompetence, managed to fail the delivery and also in the process, annihilates an entire alien race. if you love well crafted animation and love comic stuff, you really shouldn’t miss Johnny Express. there is little plot to talk about for something that’s just a little over five minutes long, but all we can say is, it is simply hilariously entertaining. created by a dude by the name of Kyungmin Woo of Alfred Imageworks, a CG animation and motion graphics outfit based in South Korea. check out the video after the fold.

Akira: 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray + DVD Combo

apart from Ghost in the Shell, Akira is perhaps the most defining manga to ever risen from the land of the rising sun. my childhood fantasy about the future practically grew out from Akira, starting with Kaneda’s badass motorcycle. though i was, in part, disturbed by Katsuhiro Otomo’s depiction of the future, but what do expect? i was just a teeny weeny kid back then and as kids, we were all impressionable little things. anyway, when Akira transits from manga to the big screen, naturally, it went on to become a worldwide phenomenon and that was 25 long years ago. fast forward to today, this classic animation is reaping the rewards of today’s audio and visual technology and reenters into the lives of long time fans and sci-fi nuts in the form of the Akira: 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray + DVD Combo.

Hollywood’s ‘lethal’ combination: director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson has made The Adventures of Tintin one to watch out for. i am not a huge fan of Tintin because my childhood were mainly dominated by Transformer, Heman, Centurion et cetera. my encounters with Tintin was only limited to the small collection of Tintin comics that the school library had back in those days. in terms of comics, nothing capture my heart more than Garfield. short and sweet with little to read. well, that’s just me.
