Winter Days – Fuyu no HiJune 15, 2008
Winter Days is a collaborative project by 35 leading animators across the world that created 36 thirty to sixty seconds long animations (the producer made two). It is based on the renku by the 17th-century Japanese poets: Basho, Yasui, Kakei, Jugo, Tokoku, Shohei and Yasui. Winter Days won the Grand Prize of the Japan Media Arts Festival in 2003.
Here are some animations that I liked:
