Stand By Me Doraemon 3D CG Film's Making-Of Video Unveiled
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The official website for Stand By Me Doraemon, the first 3D CG film starring the anime robot cat Doraemon, streamed a making-of video for the film this month. The video shows the process in which the CG animation was rendered.
Stand By Me Doraemon opened in Japanese theaters on August 8.
The manga creator duo Fujiko Fujio (Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko) created Doraemon in 1969. In the story, the robotic cat was sent by a boy in the future to the present day to help the boy's hapless grandfather, Nobita. Doraemon, Nobita, and other children deal with everyday childhood issues, solve (and cause) problems with the gadgets in Doraemon's fourth-dimensional pocket, and embark on escapades through time and space.
49-year-old Takashi Yamazaki (Returner, Always: Sunset on Third Street, Ballad, Space Battleship Yamato) and 48-year-old Ryûichi Yagi (Pénélope tête en l'air line director, Moyashimon 3D CG director) are helming this 36th Doraemon film after collaborating on Japan's first feature-length 3D CG anime film, Friends: Mononoke Shima no Naki. Yamazaki also wrote the screenplay.
