Shadowplay is a moving claymation/animated version of the events of Hiroshima in 1945
10 August 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this on the Vimeo site as linked from Cartoon Brew. It was Dan Blank's depiction of what happened in Hiroshima in August 1945 as we see a shadow of a boy in a soldier's hat playing his own game of war and trying to get someone to play an American "victim". We also see his family as they decide to move after other casualties happen around them which is too much for his soldier father. This boy doesn't seem to want to resettle with them though so he seems to go it alone. Most of what is depicted is portrayed as silhouettes or "shadows" with occasional segments done in claymation. There is also some drawn animation on poster walls that are pasted after it's all over. Quite a hauntingly moving animated short. So on that note, I highly recommend Shadowplay.
