One is left behind on a planet burned out by climate change, and another one is moving to other planets by spaceship.
TOCHKA is an art duo formed by Nagata Takeshi and Monno Kazue. They invented new method of making animation called PiKA PiKA, which is the combination of long exposure and stop motion animation technique. It enables everyone to make animation with drawings by penlights in the air. Their playing field is very wide from experimental animations to contemporary art. PiKA PiKA won some awards including the Honorable Mention in Ottawa International Animation Festival, the Excellence Award in Japan Media Arts Festival and the Grand Prix in Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival.
