The following comments have been received from Director Okada.
With 'Alice and Telles no Illusion Factory', thanks to the passion of the many staff involved in the work, we are gradually seeing the completed form of the work.
One of the reasons I made this work was that I wanted to create the air of Japanese movies and theatrical animations that I admired as a child with modern grammar. I think it's becoming a video that's somewhat nostalgic, yet a bit like I've never seen before, while keeping the ideals I had.
Boys are the main characters in this work, but it depicts a tingling youth who is running in the opposite direction from the sweet and sour youth. All the staff will do their best so that everyone can enjoy it. Thank you very much.
A novel written by Director Okada will be released on Tuesday, June 13, 2023.
The movie 'Alice and Telles' Phantom Factory' will be released nationwide on Friday, September 15, 2023.
