Animated Film First for Okinawa

Date Posted: 2001-01-26

The preview of an animated movie made in Okinawa, “Blue Remains” was held in Tokyo on Tuesday. Computer graphics are used throughout the film, which is the first full-length feature made in Japan using computer generated images.

Other movies made entirely with computer generated graphics include “Toy Story” and “Dinosaur”.

“Blue Remains” an action movie telling the story of the saving of the earth after a nuclear holocaust. The Naha company, Digital Media Factory, took two years to make the film.

It will appear in Okinawa cinemas this summer. However as it uses a digital format without film, there are not many cinemas that have the special equipment needed to show it, even in mainland Japan. One option may be to transport the equipment needed to show the picture to cinemas that do not have the necessary hardwear. In any case the plan is to show the movie nationwide.

As Digital Media Factory’s specialty is making computer graphic images of fish, and other sea creatures, there are many underwater scenes that will remind viewers of the ocean around Okinawa. The name of the heroine, Amariku, and the name of the holy land, Shineriku, have been taken from ancient Ryukyu myths.

Katsuaki Takemoto of Gaga Communications, the distributor of the picture, said “Not only the picture but also the sound reached the highest level in this movie.”

Digital Media Factory’s president is Makoto Inaizumi.
