Satoshi Kon - Editing Space & Time
Tony Zhou : “Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.”
Teasing our project just a bit, following these recent 8house announcements at SDCC.
8House: Mirror happens in a terraformed satellite, an isolated colony growing around a landed lab-starship as if it were a cathedral. In this safe haven, magicians and scientists of the House of Healers experiment with the local fauna to create man/animal ‘hybrids’, obtaining insight to utilize in a desperate cosmic war and win political favour. But a growing community of hybrids want nothing to do with war or politics, and especially not with their patronizing humans creators; only to live on their own, as they are.
Here are some characters below:
It will be basically written by me and drawn by Hwei Lim, but for five pages per issue in which we will exchange roles, I will draw and Hwei will write, to show more intimate scenes and give a deeper insight about the characters.
8House is a shared universe to be developed by several creators and published by Image Comics. A sci-fantasy playground with some premises in common, that will be explained through independent stories and teams.
Brandon talked in tumblr yesterday about what this 8house world was all about. Giving some details about Kiem, in which he works with Xurxo Penalta, and Arclight, with Marian.
We are enjoying the hell out of this thing, hope you like it when it comes out.
Hewi and Emma are doing some really cool stuff.
Can I get a brief explanation of 8House?
8house is a series of stories all set in the same world or universe ruled by 8 magic houses. The idea is to make a shared space where different creators can play off each other’s ideas
The first series is going to be a series of mini series starting with:
8house Arclight (#1 to #4) written by me and drawn by Marian Churchland. about a women whose mind is trapped in the body of a monster that she projected herself into years ago.
8house Kiem (#5 to 8) by me and Xurxo Penalta is about a soldier who is asked to fake her death in order to transport a mysterious box to an enemy house.
in issue #9 (to 12) Emma Rios and Hwei Lim take over with 8house Mirror
and then issue 13 will be the start of 8house: Yorris story by Fil Barlow.
and at SDCC From under mountains was just announced. It’s an 8house series by Marian Churchland Sloane Leong and Claire Gibson
“Set in the isolated country of Akhara, rival houses face off in the struggle for political power and military security. Three unlikely figures — a lord’s daughter, a disgraced knight, and a runaway thief — will change the fate of their world, but the only hope of peace may lie with the mystery shrouded goblins and witches, and the ancient powers they command”
