Description

Katsuhiro Otomo's animation epic - a fusion of two-dimensional and three-dimensional graphics, produced with full digital technology - is finally complete! Ten years in the making, with a total budget of $22 million, Steamboy is the most expensive Japanese anime production ever. The director`s complete dedication to every detail of the project is evident throughout the film. A retro science-fiction epic set in Victorian England, Steamboy features an inventor prodigy named Ray Steam who receives a mysterious metal ball containing a new form of energy capable of powering an entire nation. This young boy must use it to fight evil, redeem his family, and save London from destruction. The lush Victorian interiors and the elegance of the era`s mechanical design allows Otomo to create dazzling visual backgrounds and machines for this film. With more than 180,000 drawing and 400 CG cuts, Steamboy is one of the most elaborate animated features ever brought to life!
