Review::World Record::Takeshi Koike

Very Cool stuff and you’re seeing it here first.

World Record (Animated Short Film) featured with 8 other storys on the Animatrix.

Written By:Yoshiaki Kawajiri

Directed By: Takeshi Koike


Writer-directors Larry and Andy Wachowski recruited nine Japanese and Korean animators to create stand-alone stories based on The Matrix, yet drawn in the celebrated anime style (sharper facial features, techno music and lots more violence). The brothers jotted down a few ideas, but gave their directors free rein to be inventive.

World Record:

Through an incredible combination of will power and physical strength, DAN, a world-record-holding sprinter, breaks out of the Matrix and gets an all-too-brief glimpse of the real world beyond.

For those who don’t know, the director is a pretty heavy duty animator in Japan producing brilliant work.
