Group Animated Bartkira Trailer Goes Live

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Producer Kaitlin Sullivan (Moon Animate Make-Up!) and a team of animators have successfully finished their Akira and The Simpsons mash-up trailer. The video perfectly mirrors the original trailer for Katsuhiro Otomo's film and is based on the parody work Bartkira by Ryan Humphrey and James Harvey.

And the original:

The video description includes a bonus "story" explaining the origins of Bartkira.

In the days of old, deep in the dredges of the "Do the Bartman" VHS, there was a trailer. In partnership with Chicken Tonight, Butterfinger, and CC Lemon, the early 90s execs of Fox and TOHO made an animated short. An attempt to appeal to American consumers without having to spend a lot of money. Until a changing of the guard decided the kids needed more Poochie and it was lost...until today.

The Bartkira project already includes three volumes of comics and received an exhibit in Japan earlier this year.
