Fan Fridays: Kirill Antonov

Fan Fridays: Kirill Antonov

by January 29, 2016

We’re looking to the other side of the world for this week’s spotlight! Recently, Russian animator Kirill Antonov and Studio Zarumo posted some teaser clips for a project called simply Sonic the Movie 2, which they position as a direct sequel to 1996’s Sonic OVA. The two clips showcase some pretty polished animation for a fan project, with some fun meta humor in the first clip to boot. Although all of the characters speak Russian, it’s still perfectly accessible to viewers from other countries – just make sure you enable translated closed captioning on the YouTube videos.

We’ve included both teaser clips below. Studio Zarumo hopes to complete Sonic the Movie 2 in mid-2017. Thanks to sonicroc for bringing his work to our attention. As always, we’re on the lookout for fan works to spotlight, so if you have a project you want the world to know about, send us a link at fansonfriday@tssznews.com!
