British Animator Teases R-Type Animated Short Project
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Paul Johnson, who previously created a Doctor Who fan-animated film in the style of 1980s SF and action anime is working on a new project. Johnson teased his latest work adapting the R-Type side scrolling shoot-em-up arcade game from the late 80s.
The YouTube channel Mashed commissioned the project due for completion some time in April. Johnson shared stills and video clips from the project on Twitter over the last month.

R-Type is coming along nicely. I might add more detail to the explosions if I have time before the deadline... pic.twitter.com/W8XwhKdwHM— Paul Johnson (@OtaKing77077) March 3, 2016
The project is intended as a short.
