Project:13 – A music Driven Animation Trilogy

This project definitely looks interesting of combining western and eastern artists together to create a music driven animation. I suppose something like the feel and looks of Last Exile? I mean the vibe it gives from the video show something of similar to the anime but with a more of a western 70’s pop look. Not to mention the beats sound nice.

It have some big names in the industries on the project like Greg Penny, a record producer for Elton John and kd lang. Studio 4°C, the animation studio that brought us the famous Animatrix and First Squad, will be handling the animation part.

A snippet from their site:

The animation will debuts as a trilogy of three 5 minute music video, driven by strong songs with global hit potential.

1. The Sound Of Hope – due September 2012
2. Alice & The Robot – due December 2012
3. The Queen Of Illumina – due March 2013

So, in order to make such a project into reality they have set up a KickStarter page to raise funds in a more open way. Their goal is to reach 390k USD and have only 1 month to go before closing for more funding. Pledge now!

From the reward panels on the right side of the page I can see that if you pledge 10K for the project you would receive a trip for 2 to Japan for 5 nights. Those who are enthusiastic and have the resources should consider this option. As for me it’s totally way out of my budget. lol
