More About Aragne: Sign of Vermillion

Aragne: Sign of Vermillion hails from the mind of Saku Sakamoto, an animation veteran who cut his teeth on fan-favorites like Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence.

Sakamoto served as Aragne’s creator, screenwriter, director, music composer, and one-man animation army in an effort to challenge himself as an artist. Sakamoto is known for his unique visual aesthetics and creativity, and his work on Aragne shows why he’s become known as the “transcendent painter.”

Sakamoto funded his experimental indy project through a successful initial run on Kickstarter, which was backed by the likes of Takashi Shimuzu (creator of The Grudge). The film made its world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival in 2018.
