Blue Eyes – in HARBOR TALE –
Animated short film
ITO Yuichi [Japan]
The setting is the port town of Y. Over time the historical buildings have started to come to life. A brick works as a pilot for visitors from overseas. When one day it encounters a doll arriving on a canal boat, this little tale starts to enfold. The animated short uses “neo-craft animation” techniques, fusing stop motion video and computer graphics.
