I haven’t had a chance to catch up on all the Animator Expo shorts, but it was worth jumping ahead to the latest, which briefly brings Neon Genesis Evangelion into the world of full CG animation.
For those just joining us, the Japan Animator Expo is a showcase of 30 shorts presented by Dwango and Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno’s Studio Khara. The latest, evangelion:Another Impact (Confidential), comes from Shinji Aramaki, who directed the CG Appleseed movies and previously worked with Anno on 1988’s Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01.
Here’s the full short:
