Outline

The writer of spirited short-short stories, TAMARU Masatomo, authored this video work, which uses the NHK program on space, COSMIC FRONTNEXT as subject matter. While a well-known illustrator draws pictures live as the story progresses, the narrative is read aloud by KAMIKI Ryunosuke and KIKUCHI Akiko, to music provided by KUBOTA Wataru. This innovative, space-themed picture scroll rolls story, art, narration, and music into one.
