Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Concept to reality combines two animated features with a comprehensive how-to section for consumers interested in creating their own anime. Anime: Concept to Reality introduces the exciting world of do-it-yourself computer animation. It includes two animated short features, "Understanding Chaos" and "Shadowskin" and also includes a 20 minute "How-To" segment which will show viewers how they can create their own Anime from start to finish, including character design, 3D imaging and rendering, voice over and music creation, and editing. All with equipment and software that is affordable and easy to use.

In Voices of a Distant Star, Makoto Shinkai proved that a single, talented artist using contemporary computer technology can create a film that approaches studio quality. Anime: Concept to Reality attempts to do the same thing, but falls short. The disc offers two short, highly derivative sci-fi films by Terrence Walker, followed by the sort of how-I-did-it interviews usually reserved for far more accomplished artists. As the films were made in the U.S., they don't really qualify as anime, nor does Walker explain the animation process in ways that teach viewers much of anything. Aspiring filmmakers can learn more about how anime films are really made from Animation Runner Kurumi. The mystery is why TokyoPop bothered to issue an elaborate and deceptively titled showcase for someone whose work barely rises above the student level. Caveat emptor. (Rated 13 and older: mild profanity, violence, brief nudity) --Charles Solomon
