Tobira o Akete (1995)

Nonoko is a little girl who is about to go to sleep, until she spots a spirit, who has longed for Nonoko to notice him, in the shadows beyond her open door. Nonoko follows this spirit into a beautiful dreamy world filled with many colors. Flying through the air she encounters many different things from birds, to flowers, to a couple of odd looking fish, in a world that she must somehow revive all by herself.

Both Tobira o Akete and Extra are two shorts directed by Koji Morimoto and produced by Studio 4C in which the emphasis is on their sense of (very similar) visual style. While there is an element of childlike wonder and imagination in Tobira o Akete, while Extra is a somewhat plot-less music video, they are otherwise quite complimentary.

Connected

Connected

A girl on the subway listens to music, a boy on his skateboard zooms down the streets, and a motorcyclist picks up his date while the buildings of the city both sprout anew and collapse all around them. Fast-paced, always-moving and ever-evolving, follow a group of people in their daily lives while the cities around them develop to the point of self destruction.

Both are frantic music videos, and while Extra is darker, and Connected is more bright and viberant, they both seem to present questions about technology and humanity.

Tekkon Kinkreet

Tekkon Kinkreet

In the rusty and run-down Treasure Town, young orphans in their respective gangs rule the roost and use the landscape as their playground. The violent Black and naïve White are two such orphans who are unafraid of fellow children and Yakuza alike; never have they found a foe who could best them in a battle – until now. A strange man and his even stranger (and seemingly indestructible) henchmen have plans to tear down Treasure Town and erect an amusement park in its place, and they’ll cut down anyone who stands in their way. Can Black and White save their home, and each other?

Extra and Tekkon Kinkreet are both set in a hyper-violent (that includes children), visually-crowded (tons of tall buildings, electrical lines criss-crossing the city, and all manner of other structures every which way) city that gives them a very similar feel/atmosphere.

Four Day Weekend

Four Day Weekend

A couple in love fools around in their apartment, until a strange occurrence sees the once gentle face of the city start to change. Running down familiar streets, the spinning cogs and pumping pistons turn into intimidating silhouettes as haunting spirits dance forth from the once peaceful people. Can the pair find each other once more, or are they instead destined to chase the fragile bubbles dancing through the air?

Short music videos with the distinctive style of Studio 4C. Extra is definitely the better and stranger of the two but Four Day Weekend is also worth its mere handful of minutes.

If you liked the abstract themes in either Survival or Extra then it's worth watching the other. Not only are both from Studio 4C, but they are both fairly fast paced as well.
