Slowly Rising

Animated short film

INABA Hideki [Japan]


A music video for the track “Slowly Rising” by Dutch musician Beatsofreen. Under the sun that is the source of life, a single seed is born. Seeking light, the seed forms a group that gradually increases in numbers, then dies off. Another seed then grows in its place. The creator brings a cel-animation touch to a story that overlays human relations in the corporate world with the rise and fall of living organisms.
