    Art & Science of Cinematography...... . The Director of Photography is the custodian of the heart of film making ... as the writers are of its soul ... his tool is a box with a glass window, lifeless until he breathes into it his creative spirit and injects into its steel veins, the plasma of his imagination .... the product of his camera, and therefore of his magic, means many things to many

    Tribute to Miyazaki's Mononoke Hime
  • neral information and insight, images, downloadable trailers and links.
    hirteen years after Hayao Miyazaki created Kaze no Tani no Nausicaä (Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind, 1984), Japan's greatest animation director finally made Mononoke Hime (Princess Mononoke, 1997), his "sequel" to Nausicaä
  • . As one of the greatest directors/animators/manga writers Japan has ever produced, Miyazaki has frequently been dubbed the "Walt Disney of Japan" (though he probably dislikes the title himself)
  • . Mononoke takes place during the Muromachi Era (1392-1573) in Japan, as war rages between the Tatara (a town of working class people led by the cunning and fearless Lady Eboshi) and the Animal Gods of the primal forests who worship the mysterious Shishi-gami
  • . Of course, almost two decades after the first success of Studio Ghibli, only now is a wider audience beginning to recognize Miyazaki's works through the Disney/Tokuma deal (giving Disney international rights to nine animated titles from Ghibli, several of which were top box-office hits in Japan)

  • . Toei and PNP do not seem to have come to an agreement concerning the reduction of fees to Naoko Takeuchi for overseas (outside of Japan) versions of PGSM
  • . It appears that Toei is making good on its threat not to license PGSM outside of Japan
  • . Meanwhile (as we previously reported on June 23, 2004 via our now defunct tickertape), the total eclipse in Japan will end this Fall
  • . Sports Nippon (a Japanese newspaper) reported that the Tokyo Broadcasting System would air the show which would use Computer Generated effects
  • . Home Video releases of the long running series of Japanese musicals by Bandai America but then abandoned when Toei Animation would not (or could not) negotiate for an American Home Video release
  • . The original deal for Sera-Myu was for Japan only, an American deal could interfere with a live action feature deal
  • . Consistently popular in Japan, the anime revolves around the short tempered, hot-headed, red-haired sorceress Lina Inverse

    Disney Acquires Latest Miyazaki Smash
  • . [Animation Magazine]
    4/11/02 Disney Acquires Latest Miyazaki Smash, Spirited Away The Walt Disney Studios has acquired all domestic theatrical, home entertainment and TV rights to Hayao Miyazaki’s latest animated blockbuster, Spirited Away , Japan’s all-time top grossing film ($234 million) from Studio Ghibli
  • . In addition to domestic rights, Disney will also control video rights in Japan as well as all theatrical, home entertainment and TV rights in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and France
  • . Released in Japan last July, Spirited Away follows the fanciful adventures of a 10-year-old girl named Chihiro, who discovers a secret world when she and her family get lost and venture through a hillside tunnel
  • . Princess Mononoke has sold four million units ($130 million) to date in Japan alone

  • . With Haku's help, Chihiro finds out that the place she's trapped in is really a bath house for the spirits who explore our world, and how to survive in what seems to be a Japanese version of Alice In Wonderland , with the admonition that Chihiro never forgets her name, otherwise, she would never be able to return to her own world
  • . When she agrees to work for Yubaba, the bath house owner and signs the contract, Yubaba removes three of the four Japanese characters from Chihiro's name, leaving her with the name of Sen, which she must now use
  • . When most people think of Japanese animation (better known as animè), many people think of the sugar-coated kids' shows such as Sailor Moon , Pokémon , or Digimon and just dismiss them, forgetting that they grew up watching shows like Voltron , Star Blazers , Robotech , or even Speed Racer
  • . This is Miyazaki's first film after the Japanese box office hit Princess Mononoke , which became the top grossing film ever in the Japanese box office, only to be beaten a few months later by the release of Titanic


    HARO Online

  • . In Japan, it beat the record set by Titanic for box office receipts
  • . Hewitt meticulously translated the movie, making sure that Japanese cultural references made sense, and matching words to lip movements in the idiotic way that Americans dub movies

    Chicago Sun-Times: Spirited Away
  • . It is the best animated film of recent years, the latest work by, the Japanese master who is a god to the Disney animators
  • . Because many adults have an irrational reluctance to see an animated film from Japan (or anywhere else), I begin with reassurances: It has been flawlessly dubbed into English by ("Toy Story"), it was co-winner of this year's Berlin Film Festival against "regular" movies, it passed "" to become the top-grossing film in Japanese history, and it is the first film ever to make more than $200 million before opening in America
  • . Don't avoid it because of what you think you know about animation from Japan
  • . Japanese myths often use shape-shifting, in which bodies reveal themselves as facades concealing a deeper reality
  • . Miyazaki's drawing style, which descends from the classical Japanese graphic artists, is a pleasure to regard, with its subtle use of colors, clear lines, rich detail and its realistic depiction of fantastical elements

    Anime Versus American Animation
  • mparative essay regarding two distinguished forms of animated media.
    Anime versus American Animation Thesis Statement This is my thesis statement -- while American animation and Japanese animation both have their virtues, the style of American animation, in general, has a significant amount of higher quality
  • . On the other hand, in Japan, anime has been allowed to flourish all over
  • . Comparatively, its Japanese cousin has hundreds
  • . The American form of animation has not had its techniques advanced through as many stages or been perfected as much as Japanese anime has
  • . This would lead some to the conclusion that Japanese animation is inherently better than American animation; a false conclusion that I will dissect piece by piece as we go on
  • . Any animation project cannot be a flop or else (as in showbiz terms) so-and-so "will never work in this town again!" Compare this to all that garbage floating around in Japan
  • . Of course, it will be a while before animators are given the freedom and creativity that have made the Japanese successful for the last decade
