Award-nominated independent artist animates Handsome Kenya song in HD

Independent animator Kousuke Sugimoto released his newest work, "Korekuraide Utau," on the YouTube website in high definition on Sunday. The animated music video features the song by the same name from Sugimoto's friend, Handsome Kenya.

Sugimoto's music video "the TV show" was previously nominated for YouTube Video Awards Japan in 2009 in the music category. He was also a runner-up in last year's Tokyo Anime Awards.

Sugimoto is a 27-year-old filmmaker who self-taught himself animation about seven years ago. Sugimoto's previous work include the computer graphics from Nightmare's "REM" music video, 10 seconds of animation for the SMAP x SMAP variety television program, the 37-second "Dōga Sentai Anime Soldier" opening animation for the M-on TV! music program, the animation in Tsushimamire's "Hyper Sweet Power" music video, and the animation in ketchup mania's "Please Marry Me" music video.
