Awaken Akira pays tribute to animated classic

Ash Thorp and Zaoeyo animated this stunning tribute to Katsuhuro Otomo's animated Akira. It's so perfect it could be the trailer for a sequel or remake—and had plently of folks briefly fooled.

Its creation took over a year, as we had to coordinate our time on it with other project commitments. We hope you find it was well worth the wait and truly enjoy our efforts. We would like to thank Pilotpriest for the masterful score, as well as Raf Grassetti and The Joelsons for their help on the project. We would also like to give our most sincere thank you to Otomo-san and all the men and women who helped bring Akira to life. Akira has and will always be a timeless and continual muse for all of us.
