Koji's new film is a real masterpice - fresh, crazy, full of small and big surprises. Surprising is also big stylistic variety of Koji's artworks but even in small details you can always recognize the hand of great artist Koji Yamamura.

Can time be made to stand still? Can it be reversed? Koji Yamamura's Muybridge's Strings is a meditation on this theme, contrasting the worlds of the photographer Eadweard Muybridge -- who in 1878 successfully photographed consecu- tive phases in the movement of a galloping horse -- and a mother who, watching her daughter grow up, realizes she is slipping away from her. Moving between California and Tokyo, between the nineteenth century and the twenty-first, the film focuses on some of the high points in Muybridge's troubled life and intercuts them with the mother's surrealistic daydreams -- a poetic clash that explores the irrepressible human desire to seize life's fleeting moments, to freeze the instants of happiness. Enriched by Koji Yamamura's refined artistry and Normand Roger's soundtrack, Muybridge's Strings observes the ties that cease to bind, fixes its gaze on the course of life, and presents a moment in time suspended on the crystalline notes of a canon by J.S. Bach.

Muybridge's Strings is one of the deepest and most interesting films you made. No doubt you reach the accomplishment of Yuri Norstein's Tale of Tales. More over, we appreciate a lot your personal way of exploring the secrets and origins of Animation.
[Jean-Pierre Pagliano, animation critic]
We wish to honour master artist Koji Yamamura for his exquisite philosophical meditation on time and our attempts to capture it. Riffing on Eadweard Muybridge's consecutive photographs of horses, he contrasts them with a 21st century mother watching her daughter grow up and move away. One of the most perfect films we have seen. [Octber 2012, Igor Kovalyov, animation director]

“Rain falls in the mountain, Dancing on the ground
Forming a small stream of water A mischievous bear runs by the stream.
Silently he looks down at the water, And wonders if there is a fish…”
This film was made as one of the “Nihon no uta” (Songs of Japan) projects.
The project aims to breathe new life into Japanese nursery songs and school songs, and pass them on to future generations.

A very old crocodile, so old that he had witnessed the building of the pyramids, was suffering from rheumatism, and no longer able to catch his food. In desperation, he decided to eat his great grand son. Although his thousands of years of longevity entitled him to much respect, the family decided he would have to be put down. Unable to bear the disrespect of his family, the old crocodile said goodbye to the Nile. One day the old crocodile met an octopus. The octopus treated her new friend to a variety of fish that she caught just for him. When the night fell, he couldn’t restrain himself from eating one of the octopus’s legs. Since then, the old crocodile began to help himself to the octopus’ leg every night…

"The acting and camerawork are up to Yamamura's usual fluid standard, and, at 13 minutes, it's much too short."
by Taylor Jessen, Animation World Network(April 2005 USA) >>Read all reviews(AWN) >>QuickTime Clip (AWN)
“If you want or need an antidote to the often predictable formulas of Hollywood studios’ animated fare, look no further than Koji Yamamura’s pencil-drawn film The Old Crocodile.”

Review
The story that unfolds is surreal in nature, but the animation renders it quite riveting. >Site
Atama-yama no es la típica animación japonesa, es algo que sobrepasa esa y muchas fronteras. >Site
The leading figure of his generation, Yamamura best represents the vitality, versatility and artistry of Japanese independent animation, and Mt. Head represents a pivotal point in an oeuvre that has drawn comparisons with influences as disparate as Paul Klee and Monty Python, while remaining true to its cultural roots. The tale of a stingy old man who plunges into madness after tearing out a cherry tree he discovers growing from his head from a pip he has swallowed, it provided the perfect taster to the director’s witty and often grotesque meditations on time, space and identity.>Site

Buildings, black crows, a flood of bar codes, clone-looking businessmen, shopping-addicted ladies...these images which probably symbolizes excessive, standardized and overcrowded modern cities are condensed in this animation. Various techniques, like modified photo, drawing animation, 3D object and permeating lighting are combined onto a multi-planed (line drawing) stand, with a challenge to express a unique sense of unity and compression.

Best Animation School : Tokyo University of the Arts/ Animafest 2010 Award Zagreb World Animaiton Festival
to an educational institution for the best choice of films submittedThe Tokyo school was a real surprise, in my view we are looking at a future animation celebrity. Koji Yamamura’s influence is obvious, however, I believe they successfully managed to find an expression of their own. The Student Competition selection committee thus decided to grant the Award to an educational institution for the best choice of films submitted for pre-selection to the Tokyo University of Arts.
