Genius Party Beyond is a second part of omnibus by Japanese production company “Studio 4oC” (the studio was allegedly named after the temperature at which water density is the highest), known for its efforts to connect independent animation with mainstream anima aesthetics. The concept of presenting different visions and anima aesthetics was also applied in the first installment, “Genius Party” from 2007 where 7 different directors tried to lay a foundation for the future of Japanese animation.

Great Party Beyond from 2008 presents 5 directors who, in five short films, try to deliver different, vivid visions of this original project.
