Fantastic Short Film Friday - Transfer (animated)
And we are back with another installment in our Fantastic Short Film Friday series, as we continue to showcase films released in the "lesser" known form of cinema- the short film.
It's time for another amazing short film for all you short film lovers out there. Well, okay this one really isn't a short film per-se, but I still feel its well worth it just for the visuals. What many readers and listeners of the podcast may not know, is that in addition to my obsessive devotion to film and comics, I'm also a huge Japanese anime fan. I've been watching anime for about 24 years of my life and try to watch every anime out there. This music video is from the Japanese Electo-pop group Livetune, featuring the wonderfully poppy vocals of Megumi Nakajima. Here is the 6-minute Japanese animated music video, Transfer from filmmaker Kazuma Ikeda.
I just love how the music video plays with repeating themes shown in different ways, in different art styles an everything in between. Beyond that though there's really nothing else that needs to be said. Even if you don't like the music I have a feeling you'll still love the animation.
Check this out if you want to see something fun and different. Check this out if you want to listen to some great Japanese electro-pop accompanied by eye catching visuals. Enjoy this weeks dose of short film goodness with, Transfer.
