Plastic Pixel, an American Anime company located in Northern California, is working on a film entitled "The Fourth Power".
The release date for episode one is tentatively the latter portion of 2001. Plastic Pixel will release "The Fourth Power" in a series of four half-hour long episodes. "The Fourth Power" has been in preproduction for two years, and the animating process already is in progress. Previews of the series will be shown at many North American Anime Conventions this year. The film is being digitally produced at full HDTV (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution using PCs. Initially, the video will be released on DVD.
At Fanime2K, Plastic Pixel will be showing two minutes of the work in
progress, and will also display many production illustrations and sketches. In addition, they will explain how the project is
created entirely on PCs!
