a song like a fish


Animated short film [Japan]

One day, a boy is visited by a huge fish that enters through the window of his room. To create this fusion of illustrations and puppet animation using real large-size puppets, the artist rented a house that had been empty for over 10 years. After making the puppets, inctuding a 2.4 meter-height boy puppet and a 1.4 meter-long fish, he suspended them from the ceiling and set them in motion using wires, shooting the film as a stop motion animation. For the dream sequence, each frame was painted on the walls, floor and ceiling and animated with stop motion.(4 min. 56 sec.)
