MCM LONDON COMIC CON EXCEL LONDON 27-29 MAY

'Tekkonkinkreet' director Michael Arias to talk latest film 'Harmony' at London Comic Con

Acclaimed American-born anime director Michael Arias (Tekkonkinkreet, The Animatrix) is to present a panel on his latest animated movie Harmony at this month's MCM London Comic Con. Arias will be discussing his sci-fi film - part of the Project Itoh series adapting the novels of the late Satoshi Itoh - on the Saturday of the three-day show.

Spanning the worlds of visual effects, computer graphics and traditional animation, Michael Arias' wide-ranging filmmaking career includes co-founding CG design studio Syzygy Digital Cinema - creators of digital sequences for the likes of David Cronenberg, The Coen Brothers, Robert Altman and Spike Lee - as well as working closely with Japan's famous Studio Ghibli on Miyazaki masterpieces Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away.

In 2000, Arias produced hit Matrix-inspired anthology The Animatrix, which features shorts by well-known Japanese directors such as Shinichiro Watanabe and Mahiro Maeda, while 2006 saw him make his own directorial debut with Tekkonkinkreet. Animated by Studio 4C, the film about a pair of orphaned street kids taking on the Yakuza won the Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year.

Continuing to split his time between traditional and digital animation, Michael Arias has also helmed a live-action feature - 2009 Japanese drama Heaven's Door. His latest anime movie Harmony was released in Japan in 2015, hits US theatres this month and will be released in the UK on Blu-ray and DVD later this year by Anime Limited.
