Hello everyone to Danny’s Picks! Today I’ve got a very nice short film called “Kagami no Genon” which translates to “Mirror’s Fundamental Tone” or “sound/phantasma/mirror.” Both the animation and music is by Kojiro Shishido. It won the excellence prize in the 10th CG-ARTS Student CG Contest, and was a selection in the 17th DoGA CG Animation Contest.
Kagami no Genon features some beautiful effects, particularly the light elements. In fact, you could say that this is a film about light and the reflection of it; you realize that the “mirror” is the world around us and through it, one can begin to reflect inside oneself. It’s a short, almost vague film, but offers tremendous room for self reflection.
