Filmed for $116,000 on 16mm, this live-action short film featured a cast of East-Asian-American amateur actors, kung fu fights and Japanese toys, as Burton was obsessed with Japanese culture at the time of production. The film’s design style and color schemes paid homage to the Godzilla movies and features heavy special effects such as front projection, forced perspective and even some stop-motion animation. Though some claim the film runs a full 45 minutes, 35 minutes is all that was found!
