Honda: The Power of Dreams Animated Film

honda_thepowerofdreams
It’sa me, Soichiro! Honda: The Power of Dreams is a new Italian animated short film about the life of Soichiro Honda, founder of the motorcycle and car company that bears his name.

It become obvious when his sketches come to life and operate magic assembly line robots that this isn’t necessarily a 100 percent accurate telling of young Honda-san’s life. To be perfectly honest we were completely lost during much of it though it’s beautifully drawn.

To watch it, go to writer/director Michele D’Auria’s website and click “Shortfilm.” You can see a behind the scenes video after the jump.

    I love this vid. Shows his passion for what he did well. I’m reading a book about the rise and “fall” of the modern Honda, interesting stuff.
