So I might be attending a screening of this with a Q&A with Isao Takahata afterwards. Is there anything of interest I should ask him if I have a chance?
/a/ still likes Ghibli right?
Did you see the film? It was almost obscenely detailed, it's pretty obvious that the movie costed a lot to produce. It would be interesting to hear about why the production lasted so long, though.
good one anon
What's his opinion on the industry right now.
What he thought of The Wind Rises
If he has any regrets
Pun not intended right. The guy is 80 years old.
This was actually kinda the question I was thinking of asking. If he had plans to ever go back to cels if he has any future works but I guess he could pass along the same stylization to an apprentice.
Ask him what the two or three most recent anime he watched and approved of were. Alternatively, ask who or what studio in the industry right now has the most (positive) potential.
>I guess he could pass along the same stylization to an apprentice.
It's not his stylization. The art of both My Neighbors the Yamadas and Kaguya-hime was developed by Osamu Tanabe.
Why do people always contribute everything they like about an anime solely to the director? Animation is a collaborative craft.
Ask him about what he thinks about the state of animation today and what can be done to fix it.
Ask if he's trying to convince Miazaki to go back to filming.
Ask how much he pays his animators.
>he didn't watched Kaguya already.
>Ask him about what he thinks about the state of animation today and what can be done to fix it.
It's not broken. A better question would be to ask what his opinion is on modern anime, both TV and feature film.
>Ask if he's trying to convince Miazaki to go back to filming.
Those two hardly even talk to each other. Watch The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness documentary.
>Ask how much he pays his animators.
That's a question for Toshio Suzuki, and he's retired now, so you'll never get to ask him.
I have, it's shit. Way too much artistic license completely destroyed the original story, just like Disney does with its films.
Ghibli is overrated. It's a way for people who still get excited over Disney cartoons, Animal Crossing, and Pokemon a way to be autistic while still being somewhat acceptable in normal society.
It's an adaptation of a classical old tale. This art style is justified or at least understadable.
I'm not particularly fan of Ghibli but you have to say their films are one of the best things that came from animation, AND they are the only ones
at least Miyazakito make those kind of films.
