Fan-Made, CG-Enhanced “Akira” Trailer

There’s been numerous tributes and fan made films over the years to the legendary manga and anime title that is “Akira,” the most notable likely being the live-action The Akira Project trailer a few years back along with the Simpsons-inspired Bartkira.

This week though two online artists, Brad Kremer and Dean Fowler, have used some computer graphics on elements of the original to re-create scenes from the film in 3D with a primary focus on the iconic bikes and cityscapes of the Neo-Tokyo set tale. The pair call it a “short tribute to the masterpiece that Katsuhiro Otomo created and shared with us so many years ago” and it’s certainly a great tribute.
