The Escapist Vs. The Iron Gauntlet

Posted by Grey Saturday, March 5, 2011

Witness the confrontation between The Escapist and the Nazi robot, The Iron Gauntlet, in this awesome live action/animated video adapting Michael Chabon's critically acclaimed novel, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon was indeed a landmark work like no other. Released to universal acclaim, the novel follows the trials and tribulations of two Jewish cousins who are also the main contributors to a (fictional) golden age of comics during World War II.

While the film adaptation to be directed by Stephen Daldry is currently in development hell, producer Scott Rudin (No Country For Old Men, True Grit) commissioned a live action/animation sequence from artist Jamie Caliri in an effort to secure full funding for a full-length film. The video clip, recently released by Caliri, is now readily available online at Vimeo.

This piece was made as part of the development process for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.

They asked me to explore animation concepts. I thought it would be much more fun to actually shoot a section of the script to intertwine live action and animation. It was a fun surprise for the producers.


Hit the jump to check out the amazing video that has utterly convinced me of the existence of the film adaptation.
