Keisuke Ito as part of his graduation thesis from the Digital Hollywood School. It tells the story (in wonderfully colorful CGI) of a time of robots – and a time of rain.
You are left to imagine just when this story is set but if it is in a future without us then it is one we would at least recognize. There are still divisions between the rich and the poor and a small act of kindness can be remembered forever.
So, sit back and enjoy. I know I usually feature animations with lots of bells and whistles, explosions and action but this is very, very different to those. It is also one of the lovelier shorts I have come across recently.
