“Awaken Akira” by Ash Thorp and Zaoeyo
Ash Thorp and rising 3D phenom Zaoeyo collaborate on a tribute to Akira, the classic 1988 anime feature film directed by Katsuhiro Otomo.
Ash Thorp and Zaoeyo: “We wanted to pay homage to what we consider to be a masterpiece.”
“It’s creation took over a year, as we had to coordinate our time on it with other project commitments. We hope you find it was well worth the wait and truly enjoy our efforts.
“We would like to thank Pilotpriest for the masterful score, as well as Raf Grassetti and The Joelsons for their help on the project.
“We would also like to give our most sincere thank you to Otomo-san and all the men and women who helped bring Akira to life. Akira has and will always be a timeless and continual muse for all of us.”
