Studio 4°C (Tekkonkinkreet, The Animatrix, Genius Party) has produced a 150-second animated film short of Masamune Shirow's Orion science-fiction fantasy manga, and the Short Shorts Film Festival will premiere the short on June 11 in Tokyo. Director Yasuhiro Aoki (Batman: Gotham Knight, Tweeny Witches) adapted the manga with 3D animation. Dark Horse Comics published the original manga in North America.
The festival will also show A Summer Night's Dream, Yoshiya Okoyama's 11-minute film about "a young boy and 'Tokori,' [his] friendly ghost."
