amazarashi “Christmas”

Video work [Japan]



A music video for Christmas, a song from “One-Room Epic”, a mini-album by the band amazarashi who live in Aomori Prefecture. Over 6 minutes long and in full 3D, the artwork features warmth and a unique weirdness that transcend conventional 3D presentations. The animation expresses the complicated emotion and leaping logic of the lyric in the song, while the tumbling of the little girl through a snow-covered meadow and the lively transformations of the teru teru bozu; a paper doll for playing good weather keep the piece vivid right up until the very last scene.
