HIMEDA Manabu / digital / color / 11min. / 2016
This work is composed of three songs written by the filmmaker. With his own voice, he recommends solitude to the viewer, engages in a punning duet with a popular song, and sings of the joy of growing up in a mellow voice. These songs are complimented by extremely polished animation created with highly refined artistic sense and technique. An idiosyncratic piece of entertainment full of ideas, humor, and madness.
Born in Miyazaki Prefecture in 1988. Completed graphic design course at Tama Art University’s graduate school. After a period of aspiring to be an “uta no oniisan,” tried his hand at lyric writing, composing, singing, and performance, and now creates his own song and animation series “Yokoso boku desu.”
