福島県会津地方に伝わる郷土玩具「起き上がり小法師」は何度倒しても起き上がることで縁起物として知られています。
東日本大震災と福島原発事故の被害を受けた方々が、悲しみを乗り越え立ち直る姿を起き上がり小法師に見立て、このアニメを作りましたので被災者の方々に贈ります。救済はもっと辛い思いをしている人へと願って、自らは福島の避難勧告地域に留まっている方々も大勢います。私の家族もそうした人々の一部です。敬意を表しながらも心配せずにはいられません。
原発の膨大な高レベル放射性廃棄物生産のみならず、大量破壊兵器製造を続けている現在No more Hiroshima and Nagasaki の祈りは届いていません。
脱原発と核廃絶、そして自然エネルギーを未来の子供達に。

"Okiagari-Koboshi" is a traditional toy from the city of Aizu in Fukushima.
The toy is made from paper with a weight on the bottom which causes it to return to an upright position when it is knocked over. These represent the people affected by the great earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear disaster in Japan 11th March, 2011
I dedicate this film to people who keep pressing forward regardless of the circumstances they face.
Even though I worry the health and safety of my family and all people affected, I hope I can at least bring some smile to them.
Not only are the Nuclear power plants creating tons and tons of high level of radioactive wastes, there is also the fear of the development of weapons of mass destruction. The message of "No more Hiroshima and Nagasaki" is being ignored.
Let's act now to reduce and eliminate nuclear plants and weapons completely and give a renewable natural energy for children in the future.


The music was created by a friend of mine Melanie Shanahan who was a talented, bright and beautiful young lady.
She took her own life after suffering from depression 8 years ago.
We all miss her deeply.
I'm also working on an animation for "Beyond Blue" dedicated to Melanie and all who suffer from depression.

THE MUSIC LYRIC
we're moving ahead in more ways than one
we see the changes
and as the clock ticks
we fear the dangers we live in a world where mass population
and over consumption rule the production of liquids
that kill and as they spill from pipes and drains
it's not the company that explains just why it is that fish die
and we can't swim for fear of our lives

yes we're moving ahead towards unknowns
we worship changes building empires on industries with hidden dangers
we watch the clock
we buy up now and take stock as temperatures rise
and acid levels out weigh the skies to fall on us as rain
we abuse and yet refuse to contemplate our actions
we complain that life is not how it use to be

yet still move ahead
I fear to tread as gain speed
and turn our backs on that from which we feed
we do not listen
but gauge and guzzle the bounties of our earth
our greed, for what it's worth has brought us up to here

we're moving ahead
we're moving ahead
we're moving ahead
