Remember that Incal trailer? Well I just now happened to stumble onto the Vimeo account of Pascal Blais, who put this together originally, and found a digital refurbished version of the Incal animation. For better or for worse, it’s just great to see something this crisp in quality. From Pascal Blais:
A movie trailer project inspired by the graphic novel “The INCAL”, from Moebius and Jodorowsky.
A while ago, I reunited a bunch of the artists from the original “Heavy Metal” movie, to produce a trailer based upon this great work. Then I got busy building my company and it sat on shelf until a few months back, when I decided to revamp it with today’s digital punch.
Two sequences from the original “Heavy Metal” movie were borrowed from Moebius’s work; “The Long Tomorrow” story and “Arzach”. Given that till this day, Moebius and Jodorowsky are heralded as some of the world’s greatest Sci-Fi visionaries; it seems to me that a film, based on their work would be even more successful than one inspired by it.
Bringing these incredible artists’s work to the big screen, I am convinced would be a great success…so much so that I animated and directed this piece with other like artists.
