Award Reason

Amongst the applied entries which tend to compete against one another by virtue of their highly skilled animation techniques, this piece exists as if to make fun of the others; we can hear the message clearly "You can make an interesting animation without complicated animation tech- niques". This is a cleverly composed, conversational animation, which seems to never end. The creator has succeeded in allowing the audience to experience the 'gvanity hell' between dreams and reality. GHOST, another piece entered at the same time, is also very funny.
