Upcoming: Godaizer, the Giant Robot

Godaizer — a short film from animator Hillary Yeo  — is clearly intended to reference such TV shows as Tetsujin 28-go and seminal mecha anime such as Mazinger Z. The artwork itself is more painterly, giving the film a unique appearance, different from both the hard-edged cell-animation style of early cartoons and the naturalistic 3D CGI of recent work.

Here is the trailer:

Synopsis:

An independent computer animated short about a robot repair warehouse run by a old man and his grandson where old decommissioned giant robot Godaizer is kept.

When a giant monster is awoken, it is time for Godaizer to rise again and defeat it. But what cost must the monster be taken down?
