About the Video:

The video for "Hoshi Neko" was co-directed by Ruby Kato Attwood (singer in Yamantaka // Sonic Titan) and Emily Pelstring (animator, video artist). The narrative makes a guess about what might have happened to Ruby's lost cat, Hoshi, after he embarked on his lone adventure.

The artwork and puppets were hand-drawn by Ruby. Emily shot and animated them on 16mm film on a home-made multi-plane animation stand, and added digital effects to the transferred footage.

Combining the influence of Guy Maddin, Lotte Reiniger, Kenneth Anger, and early Atari video games, the piece ends up reflecting an aesthetic fusion consistent with Yamantaka // Sonic Titan's artistic vision as a collective.

The process of making this video involved a lot of idea-exchange, tedious work, excitement, and several bags of googley eyes from the dollar store.

*Some of the "space junk" and the "heart" in Hoshi's body were drawn by Alaska B of YT//ST. The star at the beginning and end was drawn by Emily. All other art by Ruby.
