Anime Director Satoshi Kon’s Posthumous Work Machine That Dreams May End As Dream

Toshi Nakamura:

Anime director Satoshi Kon passed away on August 24th, 2010 after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer earlier the same year. Kon was famous for his anime movies: PERFECT BLUE, Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, and Paprica. His death was felt by the entire anime community. Many, including myself, wept upon reading his last words, written on his deathbed.

Upon his death, Kon was in the process of developing his new movie, Yumemiru Kikai (Machine That Dreams). In his final words, Kon wrote about his final meeting with then-Mad House President, Masao Maruyama. During their last tearful meeting, Maruyama promised the dying director that Machine That Dreams would be made.

Kickstarter it, FFS. Gotta get this film made.

Sadly, I don't think the Japanese have really jumped on the Kickstarter model, have they?

Don't think so, which is really unfortunate. Satoshi Kon was one of my favorites. It kills me to see his final project being shelved like this.
