Award Reason

This work has succeeded in conveying a simple message by striking a good balance among animation, text, and music. The design of illustrations with a pencil touch is also nice. Faint exhilaration induced by music and a little green message leave a refreshing impression. If I am allowed to wish so much, I wanted to see it a little longer. It is expected that the author will further develop the narrative nature of the work, or establish poetic abstraction.
