Song Production Information


When I was working from a high place, I wondered if I could fly while I was looking at the sky.
I tried to create this song with that image in mind. I really loved the feeling of the dramatic development.
I loved VJ GYO's movie even more, If I could fly like that... it's sca, scary, Mr.T is actually scared of heights.

Video Production Information


This song has a very memorable development, and when I heard it once, it was unforgettable.
This story was created with the song's title as a key, while opening the door of many closed memories.
Doesn't the protagonist's image look like a life-sized character from an animation you liked as a child?

... There's a few more days of summer vacation, and I have many tasks remaining.
When I was watching TV in the morning yesterday, my mother was angry and irritated at me, so I went to my work desk.
I sharpened my pencils for now. I rolled a dice to decide where to start.

At that time, a warm but pleasant wind blew against my window.

When I looked outside the window, the strong wind wouldn't stop blowing.
The large trees were swaying a lot, and a butterfly was clinging onto a branch.

I decided to start this task when the wind stopped and the butterfly safely flew away from the branch...

I could sympathize with such a girl who flies anywhere in the sky.
With this story, (... which I dreamed), I tried to deliver an animation with a slightly nostalgic feeling.

This is the first time I challenged a technique called cell shading, which causes 3DCG animations to resemble cell animations.
Anyways, from the character modeling stage, there was a lot of work at the experimental level, and I spent most of the scheduled deadline date planning it...
That's why I'm happy about the response to this movie, because it was a movie I created with various regrets, despite being a so-called practice work.
