Country Doctor

Koji Yamamura reports on his blog that he's started on his next film, an adaptation of Franz Kafka's The Country Doctor. He's finished the storyboard and is now working on the layout. The film is due for completion in early 2007. He apparently got the idea from a passing comment from Norstein suggesting he take a stab at Kafka. It's to be 20-30 minutes long. I'm already looking forward to it!

He also mentions the somewhat exciting news that Norstein will apparently be focusing on finishing the first part of The Overcoat over the next few months with the hopeful goal of completion by next year. After spending twenty years on the first part, it seems unlikely that he'll have enough time to finish the second part if it's going to take the same amount of time, but we can always hope.

Yutaka Nakamura did the surfing at the beginning of Eureka 7 33. His touch with smoke, water and other such effects is beautiful.
