Award Reason

This work has indeed exceeded the scope of promotion, and fully attained a high level of accomplishment and attractiveness as a video product. Bold camera work skillfully developing from the opening scene shows exquisite harmony with the story and never fails to capture the viewer's attention. In full CG videos, scene cut and story development tend to be redundant. This work, however, seems to have placed greatest importance on being entertainment. This directorial intention is successfully reflected on the screen. We have awarded Onimusha 3, since it can be positioned as a model work for those who seek a CG directing career.
