Tomoyasu Murata – Stop Motion Animation
I Castelli Animati presents, in collaboration with Japan Media Arts Festival, Overseas Promotion (Agency for Cultural Affairs – Government of Japan), an original program dedicated to Tomoyasu Murata, Master of Stop-Motion technique, to discover a not widely known, but very interesting, side of Japanese animation. Murata employs puppet animation in an expressive way, allowing viewers to experience it with their eyes, ears, sense of touch and even through the air. He has consistently strived to express the idea of mujo, or impermanence, which is a very beautiful concept to the Japanese. Among Murata’s works, a series of short films created after the earthquake that struck Japan in 2011.
