YT IZZO “Fast, Agile, Sharp” by The Line

London animation studio The Line says they did not hesitate when asked to bring their well-honed anime skills to this brand film for a new trail bike from California’s YT Industries, “You want a big old anime sword fight? Say no more!”

From The Line: “[The film] follows a masked hero as he fights several demons with his ultra-sharp sword on his way to the peak of a Japanese city. He’s Fast, Agile and Sharp; qualities that echo the key attributes of IZZO.

“Directors Wesley Louis and Alvise Zennaro handpicked a small but elite pack of artists to make characters swoop, cut and splatter across your screens like a Japanese ink brush.

“Our intent was to honor the classic anime fight sequence but bring something new and unexpected to the table.

“The collaborative spirit of everyone at SHIFT Active Media and YT allowed us to create something really unique. With the combined effort of our in-house team, as well as friends from outside The Line, we managed to craft something that we’re immensely proud of.”
