Avatar's CG Staff Light Stage Worked on Gaiking Pilot
posted on 2010-03-24 06:59 EDT

Toei Animation has announced that Light Stage, one of the production tools used on the computer graphics for James Cameron's Avatar film, was used for an all-new pilot for a remake of Toei's Gaiking anime series. Light Stage developer Jules Urbach produced the pilot in North America. The pilot will be revealed for the first time at this week's Tokyo International Anime Fair.

In addition to Avatar, Light Stage also worked on Spider-Man 2, King Kong, Superman Returns, Spider-Man 3, Hancock, and Benjamin Button. Light Stage received a Scientific and Engineering Academy Award in recognition of its work.

Update: The Bright Side of News website reported on AMD's September briefing in which Urbach had shown a 10-second clip "from an upcoming manga movie, currently in development by Big Lazy Robot and a Japanese developer." The website posted several screenshots from the clip, and notes that a game is being developed simultaneously "using the very same digital assets and very same level of detail." Thanks, System7.

Never tried Fairy Tale.

Do also like Bebop, Champloo, Wolf's Rain, GitS.

Have you tried some of the other stuff we mentioned previous? Like Black Lagoon, Coyote Ragtime and the like?

the news about berserk suck...
ive seen black lagoon and love it,coyote ragtime never seen it
