The newest honoured guest added to the bill for MCM London Comic Con is the Tekkonkinkreet director, storyboarder, story editor and CGI animator Michael Arias. Arias will appear on a panel on Saturday, May 28th, at the festival which will take over the Excel Centre from May 27th-29th.
In more recent years, Arias has co-directed the Studio 4°C sci-fi film Harmony based on the late Project Itoh’s novel. He’s also known for producing all the episodes of The Animatrix and animating the CG for the series’ two-parter, Second Renaissance. He’ll be joined at the event by Gundam: The Origin‘s mecha designer, Mika Akitaka, and the films’ producer, Osamu Taniguchi, as Gundam: The Origin III Dawn of Rebellion will be given its EU premiere at the event.
Update: MCM London have confirmed that, during his panel on May 28th, Arias will be discussing the making of the Project Itoh film Harmony.
