Rendered in a style very similar to the work of many Pixar classics, the four-and-a-half-minute clip, directed by Takahiro Miyauchi and Takuya Okada, takes us inside the home of a woman with a fantastic imagination. Her imagination is so powerful that a simple household nuisance soon becomes an epic struggle. Things get so crazy we even get to see a courageous flying pig, a city-destroying monster and a giant lightsaber.
But aside from the well-crafted storyline and high-end animation, the film is most remarkable for the insane amount of detail given to the woman’s home and the city of Tokyo. Make no mistake, these people absolutely nailed what the modern Japanese apartment and home life looks like. And while that may sound a bit mundane, rendered as animation, it’s incredibly beautiful.
The film is currently in the running for the Audience Choice Award in this year’s Digicon6 Asia awards. The winner will be announced later this month.
