Salvatore Ganacci ‘Fight Dirty’

David Knight - 18th Aug 2021

After the priceless deadpan surrealism of his videos by Vedran Rupic, a dramatic yet equally mind-boggling change of direction into Japanese anime for Salvatore Ganacci.

Having tapped into his dark side in Rupic's fairy tale comedy for video for Step-Grandma, the enigmatic dance maestro moves into full-blown super-villainy in this amazing tour de force by the team at Sydney-based teams of GOONO and Truba Animation for Fight Dirty, with directing team Will Goodfellow and Tom Noakes from GOONO, and Greg Sharp from Truba on animation directing duties.

Astonishing set-pieces ensue as Ganacci's super-boss emerges to crush his own a super prodigy. He's a super bad guy alright.

But hang on. It turns out we're not quite done with some Rupic super-weirdness in the brilliant epilogue to round off the amazing work in animation that precedes it.
