Fluid Planet is 3D computer animation. The central character, a Teddy Bear, is a reflection on the Japanese pop-culture fascination with super cute children's characters. I wanted to make the Bear a bit more human than say, "Sailor Moon". Yet I wanted the Bear to be a sort of a non-thinking automaton. The Bear is intended to allude to Japanese culture itself; the issue of the Japanese "identity" problem. The dialogue is in Japanese. The text is in English.
