"Land" by Masanobu Hiraoka
Tokyo artist/animator Hiraoka Masanobu has a busy commercial practice that includes directing music videos and illustrating Uniqlo ads, but it’s his personal animation projects that we can’t get enough of. The latest, “Land,” features the woozy, colorful style that has become Hiraoka’s signature. With equally excellent sound design and music from Barcelona’s Aimar Molero, you’ll want to put on headphones for this one. And go full screen. You’ll thank yourself.
