16th Animation Division Jury Selections
NEW TOKYO ONDO
Animated short film
UWABO Misaki [Japan]
For this nonsensical animation, 30 pictures per second were produced with only a pencil tool. A man stretches out his arm and grasps the night view of a distant city. He and a female companion rush down the length of his arm toward the city lights. The work is defined by a speedy style and comical pictures that express the sense of omnipotence derived from coming into a large sum of money and the folly of letting happiness slip through your hands.
