A respectful homage to Shirow Masamune’s manga and Mamoru Oshii’s seminal film “Ghost in the Shell”, this is a modernized direction that still tries to stays true to the original creator’s vision. What started as a photo tribute directed by Ash Thorp and Tim Tadder (photography), soon became a worldwide collaboration of more than 20 artists from around the world, with each and everyone coming together to help breathe life into the project, resulting in the artistic interpretation you see below. For a full list of credits and acknowledgments.
For a film that was a comment on the uber-connected society of the future, Project 2501 ended up being itself an example of how this collaborative group of creatives are so connected ourselves. Many of us never met beyond the communications provided by the vast and infinite net, but still came together to make the ultimate tribute to “Ghost in the Shell”. Everyone of us wanted the opportunity to pay homage to a ground-breaking film that gave us so much.
We sincerely hope you enjoy our effort to capture the energy and beauty of the original film’s title sequence.
In an effort to brand and market this project out to the community, a collective series of posters were developed to help tell our story and inspire a devoted following.
We regretfully must decline from any offers to sell or release any of the art for the posters as we dont own the rights to ghost in the shell and its properties. Since we love and honor the original owners and creaters we must decline from offering anything at this moment.
