Brush of the God (神の筆,   Kami no Fude) is an upcoming 2022 tokusatsu kaiju short film directed by Keizo Murase in his directorial debut. The film was crowdfunded via Motion Gallery in September 2020.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

One day, a boy living in a rural town in Japan encounters a rabbit with a mysterious brush. The rabbit, which speaks human language, explains how the brush it has can make whatever one thinks into reality, and is on a journey to keep the Yamata no Orochi from resurrecting into the world and keep the brush out of the hands of nefarious individuals.[2]

Development[edit | edit source]

Director Keizo Murase originally conceived of the idea for Brush of the God while making The Mighty Peking Man, following a suggestion that he write a film for Hong Kong producer Chua Lam.[2] The Motion Gallery crowdfunding campaign for Brush of the God raised ¥2,600,192, well over its ¥2 million goal, concluding on September 25, 2020.[1] A subsequent Kickstarter campaign was unsuccessful, raising less than half of its $24,272 goal.[2] The production posted test footage of the Yamata no Orochi puppet online on October 29.[3]
