Japanese director and character designer, Ohashi Takashi has us amused – he shows us how symbols represent sounds – which become words – words often times define us. The CHANNELER is a Japanese hip-hop music video of sorts, combined with intricate yet simplistic animated typography. The video uses Japanese, English and symbolic scripts, creatively putting emphasis on the “word” and the value of the “word”.
Sound track of “CHANNELER” can be downloaded free of charge on Soundcloud.
“CHANNELER” explained by Ohashi Takashi:
This animation story, depicts the life of a Japanese man.
People can learn a variety of words (polite form and slang) to grow.
However, people sometimes take possession by the words.
Because the word is a sound intellect possessed.
Abstract animation express that the ghost of the intellect.
scripts to express life of man.
scripts will be a picture of one that rhymes.
