EFM 2011: First Images From Eric Khoo's Animated Feature TATSUMI

, Founder and Editor
Singaporean auteur Eric Khoo is diving into the world of animation in a most unusual way.

A project undertaken very quietly - nobody seems to have heard about it until international sales company The Match Factory announced that they were handling sales - the Singaporean director is in the final stages of putting together Tatsumi, a ninety five minute long feature built around animated versions of some of manga legend Yoshihiro Tatsumi's stories.

It's a project Khoo took on out of passion for the source material, Tatsumi having been a huge influence on him in his early career and from the images we have received it is obvious that painstaking care is being taken to stay true to Tatsumi's own style. The stories involved in the feature include episodes from Tatsumi's autobiographical work A Drifting Life plus short stories Hell, Beloved Monkey, Just A Man, Occupied, and Good Bye.
