posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The Japanese production company Toei began streaming a second making-of video for the live-action "Rebellions" project on Tuesday. The "Part 2" pre-production video includes short interviews with the project's three actresses as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the greenscreen and motion-capture procedures used in the action movie demo.
The "Part 1" video included an interview with director Koichi Sakamoto and a look at the visual effects process for the demo.
Toei began streaming a 133-second demo movie for "Rebellions" on its YouTube channel in August. Sakamoto, the action director for much of the Power Rangers franchise, oversaw the demo's creation at Toei Digital Center's Tsukun Laboratory. The short movie ends with a pitch for investors in order to expand "Rebellions" into a complete film.
The cast of the demo video includes Nao Nagasawa (Ninpū Sentai Hurricaneger), Minami Tsukui (Kamen Rider Den-O), and Saaya Irie (Hell Girl, Kyo no Gononi). Toshiyuki Kimura (Casshern) was a concept designer, and Yasushi Nirasawa (Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, Hellboy) designed the characters. Dango Takeda (Kamen Rider, Gantz, Mamoru Oshii's Assault Girls) designed the costumes, while Atsushi Takeuchi (Appleseed, Ghost in the Shell, Yukikaze) designed the motorcycle.
