The theme of “transformation” appears throughout my films. Be it transformation from child to adult, body to spirit, or human to god, the heroes find themselves transported across time and space into new forms. The Japanese word for “transformation” is “henshin,” which is also a key piece of dialogue in my latest film, Iké Boys. So enjoy this celebration of “henshin,” and may it inspire transformation in your own life.
After spending his childhood in Oklahoma making animated short films, Eric McEver relocated to Tokyo during college to pursue his passion for Japanese fantasy cinema. While working variously as a theater actor, translator, game developer and animation producer, he developed an offbeat cinematic vision fusing the languages and idiosyncrasies of his two homes.
