The Akira Project : A Bad-A Ode To An Anime Classic (Trailer)

The Akira Project, a passion project by director Nguyen-Anh Nguyen with a team from over 12 countries, launched their concept trailer of Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1988 legendary manga-turned-anime feature, Akira. The original Akira live action has been in somewhat of a development hell in Hollywood for over 10 years with nothing still set in stone yet.

More on the project:
We launched an Indiegogo campaign in July 2012 as part of a crowd sourcing effort to make this project come to life. Many people contributed not just financially but offered their time and talent to help the production that was shot in Montreal, Quebec from November 2-5th 2012. What started out as a simple idea between two guys having a beer (Hey! It’d be cool to see Kaneda ride his bike around Neo-Tokyo!), became a global endeavour, filled with adventures and hurdles, involving more than 40 artists in 12 different countries.

After a year and a half in post-production, we are proud to present the project to Akira fans the world over. We hope to have done justice to the timeless work of Katsuhiro Otomo and look forward to, someday, seeing the full scope of the Akira story translated to the big screen as a live-action.
