Streaming service Netflix has added a new anime title to their catalog as part of their ‘N Film’ banner.
Now streaming exclusively on the Netflix platform is Sound & Fury, an anime film featuring music by American musician Sturgill Simpson. This is similar to Daft Punk’s Interstella 5555, where the music featured in the film is based on one of their albums, and in this instance, it’s Sturgill Simpson’s latest album Sound & Fury released on the same day as this film going onto Netflix.
The film is animated by Japanese studio Kamikaze Douga (Batman Ninja, Pop Team Epic) and directed by Jumpei Mizusaki (Batman Ninja, producer for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders) with additional staff featuring Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai, Batman Ninja) as character designer, and episode directors Takanobu Mizuno, Elsa Nakamichi, Hajime Sasaki and Shinji Takagi.
The film also features staff credits from animation studio D’Art Shtajio with Henry Thurlow (Indigo Ignited) and Arthell Isom (XOGenSYS), Grayscale Arts Inc. with Masaru Masumoto (Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars), Michael Arias (Tekkonkinkreet), and Griot Groove Inc with Koji Morimoto (The Animatrix).
Sturgill Simpson’s Sound & Fury album and this film are both 40 minutes in length. The band members for this album are Sturgill Simpson providing the vocals and guitar, Chuck Bartels using the bass guitar, Bobby Emmett handing the keyboards and Miles Miller on drums.
