5 Centimeters Per Second - A painting in every scene.

Yesterday me and my wife watched 5 Centimeters Per Second.  A beautiful anime directed by Makoto Shinkai  that tells the story of Takaki and how he has dealt with relationships along his life.

I was once asked by a fellow friend and coworker, why did I prefer to do backgrounds and sceneries instead of "cool" characters and animations.  I would probably have had a better answer by just showing him this anime, and what I'd be trying to achieve.

While watching it, I couldn't stop noticing how every shot was beautifully composed. Although some of them had no dialog, they had to exist, they told a story by them selves.  I wold like to congratulate every one involved in this project, and I wish to be able to one day participate in such talented team of artists and maybe learn a bit.

Bellow are some random screen shots of the movie.  All images belongs to Media Factory.
