Ya it was visually stunning work. I don't know if this is true or no but I remember reading somewhere that all the CG was done by 200 freelance artist using regualr PCs. If thats true then its an incredible achievement.

Movie was great both storywise and visual wise. I can see it being done by 200 artist on there home pc's the stuff I've seen people do on this board alone from there home can compete with any mainstream movie effects. Best scene was the scene where he first fought all the robots then fought the leader of the neo sapiens.

Very inspiring!

If the project was handeled by 200 artists working from thier own desktops I would be very impressed. Asset managment and division of labor are two things that make independent projects of this size very difficult (especially when there is a very limited budget and people are working for nothing). As for the talent, the market seems to be saturated. I guess we should all stay tunned in for large collabrative projects- ready to add our two cents. Free or for pay, it's fun to help if you have the free time.

I'm not sure if it was 200 freelance artists, but the film was written and directed by Kazuaki Kiriya. Casshern was his first attempt at making a movie and he is better known as a fashion photographer and music video director (and husband of Jpop superstar Utada Hikaru). Anyway, I guess you can see the influence of his background in the work. I also watched the making of interviews and it looks like there were quite a lot less than 200 people working on CG... more like a handful really. But I dont think they went home at all and just slept under their desks when they werent working...

Amazing film. Probably my favorite for now. I really liked the visual style, not because it was particularly realistic or convincing, but because it had such a strong sense of style and flavour to it. Very unique and beautiful.
