DO YOU REMEMBER MACROSS ?
DO YOU REMEMBER MACROSS ?
The film will go back to the birth of Studio Nue in the early 70's, up to the productions of the first Macross series (1982-1983) and the film Do You Remember Love? (1984). Finally, I will discuss its American adaptation, Robotech (1985), produced by Harmony Gold. DO YOU REMEMBER MACROSS will explore many interviews from various archives as well as hundreds of visuals, drawings and photos, digitized in high resolution and mostly unpublished outside Japan. Once completed, it will be available for free on Vimeo, in French version (and English depending on the level reached) with optional English subtitles. My name is Jonathan CORDIER DE MELLO, aka PINK PLATYPUS, I am an independent editor and director. Last February, I published my first documentary film, LA GENÈSE DE GUNDAM, which looks back at the origins of the mecha genre and the production of the first anime "Real Robot", in a two hour long film. Today, I aim to offer a sequel in a similar format and continue the story where I left it. DO YOU REMEMBER MACROSS is written with the collaboration of Esteban D'Andrea, author of the article Studio Nue, Shoji Kawamori y Haruhiko Mikimoto: Los Años Pre-Macross (1969-1982).
Waar dient de collecte voor
a I do not make any profits from writing, directing and editing the film. SOUND: The most expensive aspect of making the film is the sound, which represents 40% of the budget. It includes the service of a professional sound engineer, his equipment, the studio rental and the mixing. TRANSLATION: Many documents (text and video) are only available in Japanese. Their translation is imperative in order to obtain a maximum of information and interviews still unpublished outside Japan. REALIZATION: This covers the cost of all the documents (period magazines, artbooks, etc.) that must be purchased and digitized, but also the cost of images, videos and music from various databases. In addition, certain passages of the documentary will have to be filmed in order to obtain a full-length film that is as rich in content as in form. THE COMEDIANS: The remuneration of the actors, who interpret the various interviewees (in the manner of the film LA GENÈSE DE GUNDAM). THE COMMISSION: This is the commission paid to Kiss Kiss Bank Bank. DESIGN: Covers the costs of the illustrator, especially for the poster. The Levels 15 000€ : The film has the necessary funds to be made ! 25 000€ : The film will have a French dubbing AND an English dubbing !
