3D Short Film: Forever Canon
Narrative 3D short films on YouTube are few and far between, but we've found a new one for you, the half-hour long "Forever Canon" aka 永遠のカノン, written/directed/shot/edited by Hideki Sakurai.
The film is a cute love story following a young Japanese couple, as recalled by the husband waiting in a hospital. The Japanese subtitles take on a life of their own, carefully animated and spaced in 3D space to reflect the emotions of the characters, enhance the humor, and help to keep it visually engaging.
The film takes a delightfully surreal turn in the last act, make sure you watch it all the way through. The characters and story are all engaging enough to keep you entertained for half an hour - never an easy task for a short film.
