Write a short summary of what happens in the film

This animation was made with 500 wood Hanko to tell the tragic cycle of ivory Hanko. It underscores the urgency of choosing sustainable materials instead of ivory, which cost at elephants’ lives.

Cultural/Context information for the jury

Hanko is used as official signatures in Japan. Due to the importance, many people buy Hanko of ivory, which is believed to be the most luxurious material. However, most Japanese people are unaware of the tragic truth behind ivory Hanko.

Tell the jury about type(s) of animation used and summarise any relevant challenges or techniques.

This stop motion animation was made using 500 wood Hanko pressed onto 2400 sheets of paper and shot sheet-by-sheet. The challenging parts are to create illustrations on the small area of Hanko (21mm in diameter) and to tell the story clearly by combining these illustrations.
