Primal fear movie part 1 Its

Primal fear movie part 1

Its complete background has been made with animation note: haido to be more specific, a technical primal fear movie part 1 that refers to haikei douga, meaning background animation and in about 5 minutes it shows the history of evolution from plankton to human by action only. While male and female are chasing each other back and forth, the female evolves to a bird and flies away to the sky. Even though the male was left alone on the ground, we can still see a cute happy ending. Like Hoshi Wo Katta Hi supplements Haku or Howl, this Evolution perfectly corresponds to Ponyo, giving a hint to those who wonder why Sosuke puts Ponyo into tap water. Is this also the work of Tanaka? In order to show how much Studio Ghibli stuck with moving everything, the exhibition consists out of various sub-exhibits that explain how the film was produced and all of these are added with panels that have been arranged in story order and are finished up with comments by director Miyazaki himself. In the first room background pictures and douga have been arranged along the story added with Miyazakis comments. There the visitors gain a new understanding on how a sequence of movements was made or how the Ghibli staff struggled on completing the animation something that cant be fully understood by only watching the movie. One of the specialties in this room is that visitors can touch or pick up things like parapara-books. Furthermore, even though Ponyo was made with the idea of drawing everything with hands, computers were also used for coloring and special effects. The exhibit shows how computers were used in processing water edges. And then the Ponyo Exhibition! Pretending to be Miyazaki I flipped the bunch of genga, needless to say it was a copy, over and over again. There were about 10 bunches of cuts and a group of visitors, perhaps animation college students or professional animators, seemed to be rather proficient in parapara-ing them. A pile of genga and douga of Ponyo, over 100, 000 pieces of paper, was up for display. I hear some cuts got lost, even with strict oversight. That enormous pile of paper actually is even bigger and radiates with the devotion of Studio Ghiblis animators. About 320, 000 pictures were drawn till the completion of the film and even though Ponyo s length is only 1 hour and 40 minutes, it used by far the most pictures a Ghibli movie ever needed. To compare and be more specific: Ponyo 100 min 54 sec: 170, 653 pictures Howl 119 min 11 sec: 148, 786 pictures Chihiro 133 min 24 sec: 144, 043 pictures Mononoke 124 min 35 sec: 112, 367 pictures Also up for exhibition are Ponyo s hand painted end credit backgrounds and credit roll. Those who have seen the film will know these have a specific warmth, showing only the names in alphabetical order, but without position titles. After the Ponyo exhibit I went to Dosei-za Saturn Theater where they screened the Ghibli Museum short Yadosagashi. Its a tale without a theme or moral lesson that directing animator Kondou Katsuya refers as slapstick. It has no dialogue, but is filled with fun of animation, just like a silent movie. So lovely, you really need to see it. Finally, a visit to the souvenirs shop Mamma Aiuto. A trip to Ghibli Museum just isnt complete without it. Also this time they had various interesting items for sale. For example, the genga cuts that were displayed at the Ponyo Exhibition were to be found in the form of parapara books and needless to say without hesitation all seven of them were bought. Ponyo chased by a troll net by Yamashita Akihiko, Surfing Ponyo by Futaki Mariko, Sosuke saves Ponyo packed into a jam jar by Inamura Takeshi, Ponyo revolting by Otsuka Shinji and so on. Simply must-have items for any of those who appreciates the works of Studio Ghibli. The Ponyo Exhibition runs till May 2010 at Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Japan. 24th of July, WEBSITE FOR GHIBLIS NI NO KUNI LAUNCHED: The website for Studio Ghibli and Level5 collaboration Ni no Kuni: The Another World has been given a more serious launch. After having had only one single screen in the past, it has primal fear movie part 1 been replaced with more details, containing basic character info and imagery the same as published by Famitsu two months ago. Ni no Kuni: The Another World is up for release somewhere this year. A specific release date still has to be announced. 23th of July, KANADA YOSHINORI PASSES AWAY: Sad news reached from Japan yesterday which due to a overloaded schedule we ashamedly werent able to report about earlier. At the age of 57 former Studio Ghibli animator Kanada Yoshinori has died because of a heart attack, as also reported at ANIDO. In the past Kanada worked as key-animator on Ghiblis Tonari no Totoro, Majo no Takkyuubin, Kurenai no Buta and Mononoke Hime and as key animation supervisor on Tenku no Shiro Laputa. 18th of July, MIYAZAKIS STARTING POINT SOON UP FOR RELEASE: Remember last Marchs exclusive interview about the upcoming English release of Miyazaki Hayaos self written 500-page book Starting Point: 1979-1996? Its publisher VIZ just informed with the books estimated street date: August 4th. As the title hints, Starting Point covers the first-half of Miyazakis legendary career, during which he rose from humble beginnings to create some of the most seminal animated features ever made, including Nausica Of The Valley Of The Wind, Laputa: Castle In The Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kikis Delivery Service and Porco Rosso, as well as his launch of Studio Ghibli. Consisting out of numerous essays, interviews, and memoirs that go back to the roots of Miya-sans childhood, the formulation of his theories of animation, and the founding of Studio Ghibli, the book is as a certain must-buy for anyone seriously interested in the works of Miyazaki, animation or film in general. Furthermore, it is added with a fitting introduction by John Lasseter, director and Chief Creative Officer at Pixar and Walt Disney. In addition, VIZ Media will also be releasing the Ponyo Picture Book and The Art of Ponyo, both due to release on August 4, 200 Volumes 1 and 2 of Ponyo s film comic will be released on August 11th, with other volumes to follow. 14th of July, MIYAZAKI TALKS PONYOS END CREDITS: This week Ghibli Asemamire, Suzuki Toshios very own radio show at Tokyo FM, brought an inside look at Ponyo s end credits with none other than master animation director Miyazaki Hayao telling all about it. On May 5th Childrens day in Japan there was a film screening of Ponyo held in Shimanto, a small rural town in Kochi prefecture with a river that is famous because of its clear water. Like every Japanese, the children there very much wanted to watch Ponyo, but they couldnt as there is no theater and the nearest one is very far away.
