project 2501: homage to ghost in the shellWhen you look up the word passion in the dictionary you'll find Ash Thorp's name there. He assembled a dream team cast of fellow artists and nerds and set out to create an homage to the ground breaking manga 'Ghost in the Shell'. Spread across the globe from Poland, South Africa to Malaysia, the team spent countless hours building, experimenting and finessing a series of images to reinvent the classic title twenty years after its original release. I put together this mini documentary to show some of the process.A respectful homage to Shirow Masamune’s manga and Mamoru Oshii’s seminal film “Ghost in the Shell”, this is a modernized direction that still tries to stays true to the original creator’s vision. What started as a photo tribute directed by Ash Thorp and Tim Tadder (photography), soon became a worldwide collaboration of more than 20 artists from around the world, with each and everyone coming together to help breath life into the project, resulting in the artistic interpretation you see below. For a film that was a comment on the uber-connected society of the future, Project 2501 ended up being itself an example of how this collaborative group of creatives are so connected ourselves. Many of us never met beyond the communications provided by the vast and infinite net, but still came together to make the ultimate tribute to “Ghost in the Shell”. Everyone of us wanted the opportunity to pay homage to a ground-breaking film that gave us so much. We sincerely hope you enjoy our effort to capture the energy and beauty of the original film’s title sequence.Check the website for proper credits: gits2501.com[2014] editor | music supervisor
