7th Animation Division Excellence Award
Animated short film
FUYAMA Taruto [Japan]
Reason for Award
It may be too much to say that this is a computer-enabled regeneration of Shigeru Sugiura and Fleischer Brothers, but the greatest appeal of this work is that it had successfully expressed unique “newness” by combining 3D-CG and classical cartoon-like design. Alien creatures created by pasting comic frames to 3D-CG in a Gothic manner generate uncomfortable feelings, and these uncomfortable feelings that color the entire work feature this work’s contemporary sensitivity.
