Who's Shooting What in 2010? Eric Khoo

Name of Project: Untitled animation based on Yoshihiro Tatsumi's 'A Drifting Life'
Brief Description of Project: Yoshihiro Tatsumi, a 74-year-old graphic artist, is regarded as the father of gekiga, a term he coined for the darker and more realistic form of manga he created in the late 1950s. For Eric who was writing and drawing comics in his early 20s, Tatsumi was a huge influence. “The more I think back, everything from ‘Mee Pok Man’ to ‘12 Storeys’ has been influenced by him,” (Eric).
The black and white feature animation is based on Tatsumi's autobiographical “A Drifting Life” and will be in Japanese. It will be a co-production between Khoo's Zhao Wei Films and local media production firm Infinite Frameworks. Multimedia artist Brian Gothong Tan will be the lead animator on the project.
