Sayonara: A Sad Farewell in an Era of Global Warming

Sayonara: A Sad Farewell in an Era of Global Warming

Sayonara is a beautiful four-minute animated short film by Canadian artist Eric Bates, a film he created while at Japan’s Kyoto University of Art and Design. The film is a mix of minimally rendered CG, detailed puppet model-making, and hand-drawn animation. Sayonara tells the story of two unlikely friends saying goodbye. A young man named Charles just lost his home to the encroaching sea and spends one last day with his best friend, a sea turtle, before moving on. Just in case you miss it, there’s a short sequence after the credits.
