Ghost in the Shell (2017)
We are very excited to introduce our work for the recently released 2017 feature film, Ghost in the Shell. Human Dynamo Workshop did a number of amazing projects for Ghost in the Shell (Paramount Pictures), directed by Rupert Sanders and starring Scarlett Johansson. Human Dynamo Workshop created a number of beautiful props; most excitingly, we were very involved with the production of Honda's futuristic concept motorcycle ridden by Major Motoko Kusanagi (Scarlett Johansson), which is based off Honda's NM4 Vultus Motorcycle. The Motorbike was designed by Taro Nishimoto (Assistant Chief Engineer) and Shuichi Kato (Principal Designer - Motorcycle design) from Honda, and modified from an NM4 Vultus chassis in our workshops in a series of communications and visits with the motorcycle's designers.
Ghost in the Shell (Japanese; Kōkaku Kidōtai, "Mobile Armored Riot Police") Is a Japanese franchise which was originally published as a seinen manga (youth graphic novel) series of the same name written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow.
The manga, first serialized in 1989 under the subtitle of 'The Ghost in the Shell', and later published as its own tankōbon (standalone book) volumes by Kodansha, told the story of the fictional counter-cyberterrorist organization Public Security Section 9, led by protagonist Major Motoko Kusanagi, in the mid-21st century of Japan.
Now, a live-action American film of the same name has been released on March 31, 2017.
