ARAGNE: Sign of Vermillion
We will exhibit at the Japan Pavilion of MIFA2021, the international market of Annecy International Animation Film Festival.
June 14, 2021
We, zelicofilm, participate in the Japan Pavilion (online) of MIFA, the international market of Annecy International Animation Film Festival, which started on June 14th.
We had not been to Annecy since the year before last, when we screened "Aragne: Sign of Vermillion" at the "Midnight Special".
It was also a great experience for me.
We are behind schedule, but we hope to release information about the new film. Please wait for a while.
New Year's Greeting
January 01, 2021
Thank you very much for your support during the past year.
Thanks to your support, in 2020, we will start the production of a new animation film "Feast of Amrita" following the animation film "ARAGNE: Sign of Vermillion" (starring Kana Hanazawa), and in January, we held an art event "The World of One Person's Feature Animation: "ARAGNE: Sign of Vermillion" and Saku Sakamoto Exhibition" in Shibuya, Tokyo. In August, we were able to launch the movie infomation website "COWAI" (cowai.jp/).
We would like to thank everyone for their support.
This year, we will work even harder than last year to achieve our goals.
In spite of the severe situation of COVID-19 calamity, I would like to ask for your continued support and guidance this year.
Osamu Fukutani, CEO / zelicofilm,LLC
Saku Sakamoto, an animation artist who worked on the digital effects of “Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence” and the ending movie for the game “Tekken Tag Tournament2”. An animated movie he made alone. He has been performing five different roles for this movie: director, original author, scriptwriter, animator, and composer.
“Aragne: Sign of Vermillion” has been praised the world over as a feature animation film produced by one person, which is unprecedented.
It was screened at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, which is this pinnacle of animation festivals. Also it was the only Japanese film to be nominated for the feature film competition division at the World Festival of Animated Film Zagreb, which is one of the four most prominent animated film festivals in the world.
The 22nd Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, Canada, and the Taichung International Animation Film Festival in Taiwan were also very successful, with long lines of people waiting in line.
Most solo anime productions are short works of less than 30 minutes, and a full-length, 75 minute movie, particularly one of such high quality, is almost unheard of anywhere.
“Aragne: Sign of Vermillion” was released in theaters across Japan in 2018. The film stars popular Japanese voice actor Kana Hanazawa in the lead role.
Currently, he is working on " Feast of Amrita " which is a spin-off of " Aragne: Sign of Vermillion".
A massive residential building stands on the outskirts of town, on a lot that was once home to an abandoned factory. There have been many dark rumors about this place lately, about the body of a teenage girl that was found there, and about the strange supernatural incidents that some have witnessed...
A timid college girl named Rin has just moved into one of the residences in the building. One night, she sees a huge insect coming out of the arm of an old woman who’s being taken away by an ambulance.
Curious about what she saw, she goes to a library, where she meets a folklorist named Tokiyo. From him she learns that there have been sightings of strange insects in this area in the past as well. These insects are called “Spirit Bugs”, and they have existed in secret since ancient times. Rin is terrified, but attempts to unravel the mystery of these strange creatures for herself. But this also means coming to grips with her own past, which is locked away…
What fate awaits Rin?! And what is the terrifying truth hidden inside the building?
