Shinya Tsukamoto's aimated short for Ca' Foscari Cinema posted online

by Chris MaGee

It was just this week that word came from Prof. Roberta Novielli about how Shinya Tsukamoto had directed a hand drawn 24-second animated promo film for the Ca' Foscari Cinema in Venice (read our original report here). The news spread across the net like wildfire and we knew that it was only a matter of time before we'd see the actual promo short posted online. That happened just a few days after our original report... and now you can check it out below. With its mutating salaryman put front and center, gun metal colour palette and barrage of sound we think this is quintessential Tsukamoto, and whets our appetite to see what the director of "Tetsuo the Iron Man" and "Bullet Ballet" could do with a longer animated film. Enjoy!

Fan of Tetsuo, so I wonder if this is any good. Can anyone give any feedback?
