NEGADON: The Monster from Mars
This film expresses the worldview of Japanese special effect monster movies made since the 1950's in three-dimensional computer graphics. It took Awazu 2 and a half years to complete, practically all alone. It is about a battle between humankind planning to emigrate to Mars and a monster excavated on Mars.
2025. The population of Earth has risen to more than 10 billion. With a need to search for natural resources, a space development project was in progress at an international scale. During such a mission, a space transport ship crashes onto Earth. At the crash site, Monster Negadon awakens.
Negadon, possessing powerful destruction abilities, is on a collision course with the capital city, Tokyo. Narasaki, an authority figure in robotics, rides the giant robot he had once created, and confronts Negadon to protect the future of humanity.
