The challenge for Phil Mitchell, IFW’s Executive Creative Director, and his 25-man production crew was two-fold. They had to create high quality two-dimensional (2D) animation that was not only closely aligned with Erik Khoo’s vision, but also stayed true to the feel and artwork of Yoshihiro Tatsumi, accurately reflecting the Japanese culture and traditions.

Get ready for something different from 45-year-old film maestro Eric Khoo. Having made his name with dramas like Mee Pok Man12 StoreysBe with Me, his latest work is a Japanese animation that pays homage to the life and works of Yoshihiro Tatsumi, the godfather of alt-anime - Time Out Singapore.

Singaporean auteur Eric Khoo is diving into the world of animation in a most unusual way - Twitch Film.

TATSUMI celebrates the life of Japanese comic artist, Yoshihiro Tatsumi. Growing up as a young boy in occupied Japan, his family was poor - The Match Factory

The film which is in advanced post production and is set to be completed by the Spring, is a strong contender for a slot at the Cannes festival in May. Not only is Khoo Singapore's only director to date to have had a film in Cannes competition (My Magicin 2008), Tatsumi may serve as a gentle lesson in the diversity of Japanese animation for the uninitiated - Filmbiz Asia.
