Attack on Titan anime director Yuichiro Hayashi on how Zack Snyder’s 300 inspired him
In a recent interview, the director of the highly popular and successful anime Yuichiro Hayashi shared,
“I struggled a lot with what to do with the visuals of that scene. I didn’t want to make it an ordinary flashback. I wanted its look to be more striking. The characters look darker because they’re all against the light, while the sky is glowing brighter. We wanted it to look like some images from the movie 300. “
“It looks kind of like bleach bypass. It has created an extraordinary ambiance. I thought that the ordinary blue sky would not fit that scene. We needed a world with a tense, unsettling atmosphere to show something unusual is happening.”
300 is an original graphic novel by Frank Miller and, in 2006 director Zack Snyder helped in putting the graphic novel into a movie with his unique direction, which landed him an opportunity to work in the DC Cinematic Universe by directing Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
