Wouldn’t it be cool one day to create your own anime and folks dress up like your characters?

Truth is…it is possible.

Monty Oum made his own anime and built his brand and well….

Boom!  Yup it is possible.  What are you waiting for?

We talk about making anime.  Truth is that year after year it is getting easier and easier to do it on your own or with some friends.

For example check out the latest trailer for Gantz 0.

Here are some behind the scenes.

So maybe combine Poser, Iclone or DAZ3d with one of the packages below.

Personally I’ve used IPIsoft but I’ve recently been thinking about Iclones Mocap or Iclone mixed with Perception.

Hey Perception if you want to give me a mocap suit and Iclone you want me to start making my anime using your stuff that I promote please call me.  LOL.

Seriously….call me.  Perception Neuron looks awesome.

Okay back to our story.  Did you know the creator of Gantz actually used Poser in creating his comic?


So why not use something like POser, Iclone or DAZ to make your stuff?

Now I need to find some cheap facial capture software.  If you know where to find it please let me know!

I love it.  Reallusion please get me one of these.   I will tell everyone about it till the end of days.  :)

I’ve been also keeping up with this guys tutorials.    I’m always looking for easier and faster ways to animate an entire film.  This guy has it right.

Here is an artist showing us how to use Sequencer to make cinematics.  First let us show you the level of work you can do in UE4


Here is the making of this awesome looking cinematic and here are some videos that can show you how to do it yourself.

Here is the making of…

I hope you can see the possibilities.  This animation was done in real time/live.   They used characters and motion capture.

Motion capture is getting a lot cheaper.  .  I showed a video in the posts that shows just how much cheaper they are getting.  So the question is can you combine Cheap motion capture, with say Poser, Iclone or Daz characters?


Imagine using something like the characters below.  Popping some mocap ln there and using Ue4 for the render?

Michel Victor has some cool work.

He has extensive tutorials on how to add animation to a still drawing.  You don’t have to make the whole anime frame by frame.  Why not do a manga with a little bit of pizzaz to it.


You can get your tutorials here…




So I wanted to tell you about one of my favorite creators Brian Haberlin.     It looks like his graphic novel Anomaly is coming to life on the Hollywood screen.


Relativity has closed a deal to finance, produce and distribute Anomaly, a live-action feature based on the interactive comic book created and written by top showbiz lawyer Skip Brittenham and Brian Haberlin. The script will be written by Ed Ricourt and Joe Roth is producing with Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker Tooley.






Which I think is totally awesome for him!

I’m sure many of you would like to create and get something on the screen, like a full fledged anime.  Well truth is you can.  You just have to create it first in some form or other.

I remember a great storyteller and one of my favorite, if not my favorite creator of all time, tell me if you create it they will come.

That man was Doug Tenapel.

So guys if you really want to do this and get an anime created go for it.  At least make a manga and put it on Webtoons or something to that effect.  Then you will see if they come or not.
