quietearth [Celluloid 03.12.09] movie anime news scifi action

Set in three, 20 minute parts, Baton is an animated scifi film directed by both Ryuei Kitamura and Shunji Iwai. Details are sketchy, but we do know from Jfilm Pow Wow that the film is set "on a future Earth in which the two main characters, Apollo and Michal, will live side by side with intelligent robots". Now whether this is the basis for all 3 parts of the film is unclear. but regardless, the trailer looks incredible. It will be a mixture of both rotoscoping (ala A Scanner Darkly) and animation, with additional 2D and 3D effects, which is actually being done here in the states by Studio Titmouse.
