The latest film from director Ben West and Australian special effects guru, Robot, comes FUGU & TAKO, the story of two Japanese salarymen who get more than they bargain for when one of them demands ultra fresh "fugu" (pufferfish) at a sushi bar.
I'm getting a strong Hitoshi Matsumoto vibe from the mock-documentary style of this, reminiscent of his classic BIG MAN JAPAN, together with something like Minoru Kawasaki's EXECUTIVE KOALA. The effects work looks absolutely sensational - the expressiveness of the "puffer face" is incredibly emotive - and quite frankly I cannot wait to see the full film.
Check out the trailer below and there's also a link to Robot's website so you can check out their back catalogue of excellent videos.
