Hi everyone. Very pleased to announce that my short film SHOTENGAI has been selected for a few film festivals and recently won the Film category in the ARTSTHREAD global design graduate show 2020. Big thank you to Blender for making such an incredible software accessible to everyone. It is truly empowering for creatives like myself to be able to create on an open source program without any limitations. Also thank you the whole Blender community for your sharing of knowledge - couldn’t have done it without all your tutorials! Hope you enjoy!

Shotengai investigates Takaharu’s role in a future society extended through technological infrastructures - a story about space, city, and technology.
