Another successful Young Animator Training Project work.

Oji-san no Lamp has just about everything. It is a short (a little over 20 minutes) and sweet story about a young lad trying to make a living. It has drama, passion, history, maybe even a sense of adventure. It is a very coming-of-age story that touches the heart and illustrates human emotions quite realistically.

This may be my favourite of the 2011 Animator Training works. It presented a solid story very well. I wouldn't change anything. It begins from "present day" where a little boy's grandpa takes out an aged oil lamp. It then proceeds with the grandad (Tatsunosuke) giving his story starting as a young orphan; the plot moves on to Tatsunosuke as a teenager thinking of "entrepreneuring" oil lamps - which are modern inventions at the time; finally it climaxes when Tatsunosuke is a young adult and happens to stumble upon the next modern invention, electricity.

I found myself routing for Tatsunosuke's hard work and efforts throughout the movie. His earnest attitude was very lovable. There aren't any other characters that were touched upon at all. There's really only one person in the spotlight in this animated short, but this is all that is needed. It definitely works.

I think just about anyone can enjoy this. The plot is very easy to follow. I found that events very intruiging. What they did best, however, was the emotional strain Tatsunoke feels when he's introduced to electricity. A very good work with great everything (art, animation, atmosphere, characters).

It may be a bit "slow" for the younger folks though.
