A Short Film That’s Good for Health, Bad for Education

Some nerd named IvanKW got tired of all the Akira fan-films with crappy CG motorcycles and decided to do something about it — he got real motorcycles and filmed the above fan video. It’s less a short film than a collection of scenes including one of Kaneda’s crew losing a motorcycle fight, Kaneda at the bar, then Kaneda driving through the city. The effects are great for a fan video, even if it appears it was edited by a monkey on cocaine — I don’t think any shot lasts longer than three seconds. Still, it’s impressive work and worth sharing, I thought. (Via Comic Book Movie)
