A while ago, I reunited a bunch of artists from the original "Heavy Metal" movie to produce a trailer based upon this great work. Then I got busy building my company and it sat on my shelf until a few months back, when I decided to revamp it with today's digital punch.
Two sequences from the original "Heavy Metal" movie were borrowed from Moebius's work; "The Long Tomorrow" story and "Arzach". Given that till this day, Moebius and Jodorowsky are heralded as some of the world's greatest Sci-Fi visionaries; it seems to me that a film, based on their work would be even more successful than one inspired by it.
Bringing these incredible artist's work to the big screen, I am convinced would be a great success...so much so that I animated and directed this piece with other like artists.
