About

CG animation created by a single person!

Hello. I am Akira Suzuki.I work as a freelance 3DCG artist in Japan.

To date, I have participated in the production of numerous animated movies including "Blue Submarine No. 6 "directed by Mahiro Maeda, "GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: INNOCENCE" directed by Mamoru Oshii, "ATTACK ON TITAN" directed by Shinji Higuchi, "Shin Godzilla (2016)" co-directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi, and more.

I created the movie I uploaded here during my spare time from work. I started this project to learn 3D application skills, but with the launch of Kickstarter in Japan, I decided to complete the movie as a full-scale production.

Roughly 10 minutes of video are already complete. I intend to create 25 minutes of CG animation by myself. That is my goal. I am also hoping to make the movie more than an hour long through stretch goals!!

Please lend me your assistance in this personal challenge!!

こんにちは鈴木朗です。私は日本で3DCGのフリーランスアーティストとして働いています。

ここにアップしたムービーは仕事の合間を縫って作ってきたものです。3Dアプリケーションの技術習得のために始めたプロジェクトでしたが キックスタートの日本でのローンチをきっかけに作品として完成させる決意をしました。 現在すでに10分ほどの映像が出来ています。 25分のCGアニメーションを1人で作る。 それが私のチャレンジす。 

そして!ストレッチゴールとして1時間超えも目指します!! たった1人の挑戦に力を貸してください!!

Akira Suzuki is handling all aspects of creating "HORROR OF THE UNDERWORLD" including direction, animation and video production. The episode is scheduled to be 25 minutes long. It will be voiced in Japanese with English subtitles. Production is scheduled to take 16 months.

「地下城の魔物」は鈴木朗が監督、アニメーション、映像制作全てをします。 エピソードは25分の予定です。 日本語音声英語字幕 スケジュールは16ヶ月を予定 しています。

Roughly 10 minutes of video are already complete. Through this Kickstarter project, I hope to raise a total of ¥17,000,000for the creation of the remaining 15 minutes of video and finishing work, the addition of an audio track and subtitles, the cost of creating DVDs and a budget for providing rewards. In addition, I would also like to lengthen the episode to more than an hour long in order to further deepen the story. I kindly ask you for your support.

現在10分近い映像が出来上がっています。 残り15分の映像制作とフィニッシュワーク、音響製作、字幕製作、DVD製作のコスト、リワードの為の予算、計 1700万円を このKickstarterプロジェクトで調達したいと考えています。 また、さらに深い物語にするためエピソードを1時間を超えた長さにする事も考えています。 どうぞ皆さんの支援をお願いします!

story

The Story Deep under Tokyo, a fiend appears. An underground passageway collapses with an earth-shaking rumble, and the fiend comes into view. Several hundred workers, as well as the Mayor of Tokyo and his escort forces who just happen to be visiting for an inspection, find themselves trapped underground. They are cut off from the outside and have no way of calling for help. Members of the hard-pressed group, locked in darkness with no way of escape, lose even their ability to remain rational and get swallowed up by the fiend. What is the true nature of this fiend? And what actions do those remaining take?

東京の地下深く魔物は現れた 咆哮のような地響きと共に地下道が崩れ、魔物が現れたのだ。 数百名の作業員、折りしも視察に訪れていた東京都知事、護衛部隊一行は地下に閉じ込められてしまう。 外部との連絡は断たれ、助けを求める術さえ無い。 闇に閉ざされ逃げ場も無く、追い詰められた人々はもはや理性さえも失い魔物に飲み込まれてゆく。 魔物の正体は? そして残された者が取った「行動」とは 。

The story, the design and everything else are the original creations of Akira Suzuki.

ストーリー、デザイン、全て鈴木朗が作り出したオリジナルです。

The production is being created entirely using hand-drawn key frame animation, and contains no motion capture animation.

全て手付けのキーフレームアニメーションです。 モーションキャプチャーは使っていません。

The movie uploaded here is just a small part. Roughly 10 minutes of video are already complete.

Risks and challenges

I am confident in my ability to complete the production on schedule.
However, there is the possibility of falling behind schedule to achieve higher quality.
I will make every effort to create a high-quality production in as short a time as possible, but please understand if delays occur.
I will notify supporters in the event of a delay.

予定のスケジュール内に作品を完成できると確信しています。
しかし高い品質を達成するためにスケジュールが遅れる可能性があります。
