Good Shorts

Yodaka no Hoshi and Calm are easily among the best animated experimental shorts I've ever seen. Dance, dance, dance and Old City Ward are solid ones too.
Best short anime creator I've came across.

His works are superb and extremely unpopular which is really unfortunate for all the great work he has done.

I really liked Yodaka no Hoshi and Calm.
I guess if van Gogh would work on animation...it would look like this. :D
