I love Cousteau. Watching this show when I was a kid, I’d dream about going on far away adventures and discovering new things. I especially like all his gear, boats, helicopters, etc.

Here’s 48 minutes of awesome:

About “A Kiss from Tokyo” in the words of Stephane Coedel (co-director/animator)

“A Kiss From Tokyo”, Theatrical Trailer (1964) – Yuki 7 dashes around the world in hot pursuit of the tantalizingly tricky Diamond Eye, who is stealing parts and plans and leaving behind a path of murdered scientists in her quest to build a missile inside her volcanic lair.

I co-directed it with and for Kevin Dart.
This animation is a part of a promotional event about the release of Kevin’s new book, “Seductive Espionage, the world of Yuki 7” which will happen this summer.
Kevin produced the graphics and I gave them life in After Effects.

I tried to catch what was typical about the vintage look of the movies from this period. Lighting, grain, old school Special Effects (car chase in a studio with background projected film, miniature sets), editing, old fashion transitions, Music, etc…
Cyrille Marchesseau created a great piece of music inspired by Laurie Johnson (The Avengers) and John Barry (James bond).

Order the book, “Seductive Espionage: The World of Yuki 7” from fleetstreetscandal.com
