Ishida Hiroyasu is a brilliant young animator from Japan, and in March of 2010 I posted his Fumiko’s Confession; that video source is gone now, so I am re-posting it as the second video entry today. This year he turned in his graduation piece, called Rain Town, and posted it to YouTube just a week or so before the major earthquake/tsunami created such widespread destruction and loss of life across Japan. I have no idea if he survived that event, and because of it my attention was distracted from noticing this beautiful piece until now. I really hope he and his family are all right, and we will get to see more from this wonderful creator; with virtually no words he tells intense stories of the human heart.
