My Home is a really lovly made short film by Tetsurou Kodama. The short film uses a musical piece made and sung by mayU and it was animated by echoes animation.
I just found this short film by accident in the MAL popularity rankings, looking for what would be at the very bottom of the ranking. And this short film turned out to be one of the lowest ones. For some reason i decided to just watch it, since i found a youtube link on their website and i said: "5 minute short film? Why not?!". Most short films are made with a lot of love, since they are made mostly by amateurs and they try to give their best and their everything to define a story and a fitting video, whilst still having an inspirational story - if possible. In terms of animation and art, creators of short films tend to just use their own style, which i really like a lot. If you watch a short film made by a single or a few persons, you can really see their style.
Coming to how i liked it, i actually enjoyed the music. It kept me going and not dropping the short film halfway through. It also kept me interested onto the story and the characters, which by the way are really loveable. You can really feel for their pain and desires and you feel happy and sad for them, while they are going through their stuff.
The story evolves around 3 men, which gather randomly in front of a big sign called "Dream House". They all want to live in such a house, but clearly are too poor. Here the story kicks in, and where i will leave it, storywise.
The art & animation was OK. Nothing too spectacular. I'm quite sure it was made with CGI too. The way, the characters were presented and shown was by far the best in this short and what i really enjoyed in this 5 minutes.
A fun fact to end this review: It took me more time, to write this review, than watching the actual short film. read more
