Animated short film
KANEKO Isaku [Japan]
A “Locomotor” with a locomotive head on a human body slowly starts to run and accelerate. The railroad ends in front of a pond of heavy oil, but the out-of-control locomotive plunges into the pond with a surplus of power. The harsh impression of a speeding locomotive human drawn in black ink, gushing smoke, and splashing water are created from smooth motion animation of 24 frames per second.
