3rd Digital Art (Non Interactive Art) Division Excellence Award
CG motion picture / Animated feature film
MORIMOTO Koji [Japan]
Reason for Award
A worldview where timelines cross and cross again is richly depicted in a film filled with the atmospherics of traditional Japan. The characters’ emotions are drawn with a slapstick touch that works together with charming and finely executed visual expressions to make this work both fresh and ceaselessly interesting. This is a work where the delicate touch of so-called “Japanimation” is given its fullest, most dynamic expression.
