posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Film director and Psycho-Pass chief director Katsuyuki Motohiro announced at a Ghost in the Shell Arise talk event on Saturday that he is participating in Ghost in the Shell Arise border:less project, a series of shorts by “young creators who have transcended the boundaries of genre.” The short movies will have the same ambience to them as the main Ghost in the Shell Arise anime itself.
Motohiro selected the creators for the project himself. Currently, the staff list includes Daisuke Yamaoka (a director who won the FOX Movie Premium Short Film Festival 2013 award for his short film "Ii ne!" or "That's Great!"), Junta Yamaguchi (a film director who is part of the Europe Kikaku theatrical production group), and Yoshikatsu Kimura (a director who debuted with 2011's KG Karate Girl).
A total of five short movies will premiere at a screening at the TOHO Cinemas Nihonbashi theater on March 28. The shorts will serve as some of the works that will celebrate the new, large TOHO cinema, which will open on March 20. The shorts will also be posted on the web.
