CASTLE

MIYAJIMA Ryotaro

Animated short film [Japan]

A designer considers a castle blueprint with a siege battle coming to mind. During the Warring States era, many lives were lost, and he plans to incorporate the elements of the tea room so that samurai can regain their humanity in the castle, which was the cornerstone. This thought was visualized and drawn in ink as one shot animations. Motifs such as castle, samurai, architect, and tea master change as bold camera work develops. [5 min.]
