Animated short film

YUASA Masaaki [Japan]


An original animated short film based on pro wrestling with script and direction by YUASA Masaaki, OSHII Mamoru as supervising editor, and production by Production I.G. Making use of a cloud-funding service (funds and cooperation provided by numerous supporters through the internet), and inspired by the resulting communication with a global fan base who gave their support, the staff were inspired to create a new style of work.
