In a distant world's feudal past, a masterless warrior tracks the murders of the Royal family, the same men responsible for his own death. Driven by honor, his quest throws him headlong against those who would dominate through villainy, fear and intimidation. An avenging angel for the tortured, the story unfolds in Kaze, Ghost Warrior!Written by
The book, "CGI Filmmaking", by the film's director Timothy Albee, outlines the entire process of the creation of the film, and how feature-quality animation, visuals and story can be produced for a fraction of the accepted Hollywood budgets. See more »
A brilliant effort and an inspiration to animators
Seeing Kaze - Ghost Warrior for the first time was an adventure for me. The plot, the brilliant animation and the depth of the characters amazed me, and one must consider the fact that this film was created by one man, on two off-the-shelf computers and from off-the-shelf software. The story line of the film actually has you interested, and the animation only serves to fill in more beauty to the plot. This exemplary feat in animation should be an inspiration to not only those who want to animate, but also to large companies like Dreamworks who are already churning out countless CGI animated films, getting away with mediocre story lines in place of sleek graphics. I have been familiar with Timothy Albee's work for some time now, and he is definitely a filmmaker to keep your eye on. When you take into consideration Kaze's short length (about 25 minutes long), you could expect great things from Albee in terms of a feature-length film. I only wish that more animated films could be as dedicated in their development as Kaze.
