Humorous but wistful,the ultimate healing animation!

Profile:
TOMOYASU MURATA was born in Tokyo in 1974.  He graduated from the Graduate School of Tokyo National University of Fine Arts & Music in  March 2002. He has received several awards including the Cultural Affairs Agency's Excellence  Prize of Media Arts and Animation for his work, "SUIREN NO HITO," while a student. He has also got many awards after the graduation, such as the Excellence Prize at the Ninth Hiroshima  International Animation Festival for his "Scarlet�@Road." The pentaptych, "Road Series,"  is his lifelong project.

In 2002, he worked on the promotional video of Mr. Children's big hit song, "HERO," and the heartwarming style and the impressive characters attracted public attention.  The auteur, who has come under the spotlight both at home and abroad, represents his view of  the world, making the best use of the animation technique. This is the ultimate DVD which includes the whole collection of his works from his directorial debut to the latest.

The characters don't say a word because their words would give away "the answer. " How far can imagination take the audience just from looking at a tree rustling in the wind? I'd like to make my works stimulate the imagination of people who watch them.

I'd like to find the contact point between life and art at a moment in ordinary days, and place importance on making something that would remain the audiences' hearts forever. It would make me the happiest if people want to buy my works of art and appreciate them at home.

What rejoiced my heart was not the award itself but the empathy so many people felt by sharing my view of the world.
