50's live-action Astro boy



the Flying Astro boy

This is the Clips from live action Japanese Astro Boy I found on Youtube Astroboy looks really.... "awesome..." (you can see clips of Gigantor TV shows as well)

當年真人版的Astro Boy實在太靚仔了,那個比例很有趣...

In 1962, MBS released a Live Action movie, a compilation film made up of episodes from the 1959-60 live action TV series that came before the 60's animated television series which loosely followed the manga. The opening sequence (around 1 minute) is an anime type animation, and the rest is a Black and White movie. The whole movie lasts for 1h15m. Wikipedia

Gatchaman and AstroBoy Get Distribution

IMAGI ANIMATION STUDIOS ENTERS INTO GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT WITH WARNER BROS. PICTURES AND THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY
Hong Kong (September 27, 2007) – Warner Bros. Pictures, The Weinstein Company and Imagi
Animation Studios agreed upon principal terms for the worldwide distribution of the feature films Gatchaman and AstroBoy. The announcement was jointly made by Jeff Robinov, President, Production, Warner Bros. Pictures; Harvey Weinstein of The Weinstein Company; Imagi Co-CEOs Douglas Glen and Francis Kao; and brokered by The William Morris Agency.
The new pact builds on the success of TMNT, Imagi’s first theatrical motion picture, also distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and The Weinstein Company. TMNT opened in March 2007 at the top of the U.S. box office.
“ Imagi is breaking new ground with big action pictures done entirely in CG animation,” said Robinov. “It’s an exciting new genre, with the potential of attracting big mass market audiences.”
“TMNT had the kind of beautifully choreographed action sequences you’d expect from Hong Kong animators,” said Weinstein. “The next two films will confirm Imagi’s reputation as the world’s leading action hero animation studio.”
“We are delighted to be allied with the marketing and distribution power of Warner Bros. Pictures and The Weinstein Company,” said Glen. Added Kao, “We’re making Hollywood-style movies with Hong Kong-style excitement and stories that are fusions of Western and Asian themes.”

機械人電影

Transformer的成功(票房),證實"機械人"電影在市場上的肯定,也促使Holyhood製作更多有關"機械人"的電影。華納(Warner Bros. Pictures)在早前宣佈拍攝 RoboTech 的計畫,由 Tobey Maguire (飾演Spiderman, Peter Parker) 擔任主角。RoboTech其實是指的是三部不同的日本卡通影集,包括超時空要塞((The Super Dimension Fortress Macross),機甲創世紀(Genesis Climber Mospeada) 和超時空南十字騎兵 (Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross) 所剪輯而成的卡通片集,80年代在美國電影播放。曾經看過的朋友都覺得有點不倫不類。華納將要拍攝的主要是 Macross

另外 New Regency 和20 Centry Fox 也宣佈拍攝 Voltron
(百獸王)。
最後是Weta製作的新世紀福音戰士,我在早前的Post都有題過。相信已經泡湯了吧

其實自己一直也喜歡機械人也一直希望可以拍成電影,不論我喜歡Transformer與否Transformer 也開拓了一個 Holyhood 電影的新市場Transformer 2 預計2009年暑假上映。相信會有更多公司拍機械人 希望不要一窩蜂濫拍......

題到 Macross又有很多想講... 待續

Korea Gatchaman x MazingerZ !?


無意中發現這個Gatchman老Dub韓版,十成像天野喜孝的人設,七成飛鷹俠的造型。最"頂癮"是加個像鐡甲萬能俠的機械人,分體後"夾硬"變成五部戰機。完全唔夾,都幾搞笑.....片名叫"007",但不太清楚是那一年的作品及有多少集。

Paul Dini Scripting “GATCHAMAN”

Hong Kong (September 21, 2007)– Paul Dini has been signed to collaborate on the screenplay for Imagi Animation Studios’ upcoming CG animated motion picture, Gatchaman. Announcement was made by Francis Kao, Co CEO & Chief Creative Officer. “ We are excited to have Paul on our talented Gatchaman team,” said Kao. “His extensive background in animation and superhero comics will contribute greatly to this ambitious action movie.”

“The original series was one of the classics of early anime, and the film will be very true to the Japanese source material,” said Dini. “As a studio, Imagi is constantly breaking the boundaries of animated adventure. Not only are their action sequences amazing, but their characters are driven, complex and play for life or death stakes. It’s a great environment for a writer with a rather dark take on animation.”

電影編導Paul Dini 的事業橫跨動畫《蝙蝠俠:動畫系列》、電視《迷》及漫畫《Detective, The World’s Greatest Superheroes》。 他是Emmy、Eisner and Writers Guild of America Awards 的多次獲獎者。Dini 現在亦是 DC Comics 2007 每星期系列《Countdown 》的策劃人。他的創作 Jingle Belle and Mutant,Texas 依舊常常出現於 Dark Horse、 Oni Press 以及其他刊物。Dini與他的妻子─魔術師Misty Lee,一起推出一個以他們創作的木偶Little Rashy為主角並廣受歡迎的互聯網短片。

簡單一句: Paul比Kamen更了解Superhero的世界,更加掌握 Gatchaman...

微涼...

正在幹一些極不想幹又非幹不可的工作,扮演著不應該扮演的角色,好想儘快返回自己原有的崗位。大家生性一點,你我都不用這麼煩。

管理管你,你自己攪得好好地,亦不必我來管你。兄弟姊妹們幫幫忙、出多點力、一起做齣好戲吧!

今天的天氣一流......稍為舒緩一下沉重的工作壓力.
看著天空,耳邊啍起林憶蓮的"微涼"...

EVA Live action Trailer?


這條片在YouTube已經有了很久。初看時相當興奮,嘩!大 Cast 喎....
片中的鏡頭及美術風格很不一致,CG也是很只是電玩的質素,真是Weta的製作嗎?
看清楚,其實只是Fans的自行製作的 Fake Trailer 而已......
不過的確很期待能看到真的EVA Live Action Movie Trailer。

Live Action Neon Genesis Evangelion


You can see a lots of concept art from this clips. I don't know what's the status of the development, is that on hold? I am not sure...
由 Weta 製作的EVA電影一直沒有音訊......計劃可能已經告吹了。
