Hayao Miyazaki: Films To Last A Lifetime
Transcript of Hayao Miyazaki: Films To Last A Lifetime
Hayao Miyazaki was born January 5, 1941, in Bukyö, Tokyo.
Animation: How He Started
Miyazaki saw the film 'The Tale of the White Serpent,' and that got him intrigued in animation. Due to his previous dabbling in manga, he could undoubtedly draw a human figure, one of the prerequisites to become an animator.
Continuing With His Passion
Miyazaki got his first animation job a Toei Animation, as an in-between animator for the anime Watchdog Bow Wow. Miyazaki played an important role as chief animator, concept artist, and scene designer on Hols: Prince of the Sun, a landmark animated film directed by Isao Takahata, with whom he continued to collaborate for the next three decades.
How He Started Studio Ghibli
Miyazaki left Toei in 1971 for Nippon Animation where he co-directed 14 episodes of the first Lupin III series with Isao Takahata. Miyazaki left Nippon Animation in 1979 in the middle of the production of Anne of Green Gables to direct his first feature anime film The "Castle of Cagliostro", a Lupin III adventure film.

Miyazaki, aspired to be mangaka (a manga artist). This helped him later in animation.
Miyazaki's next film was Nausicaä: Of The Valley Of The Wind, which was an adventure film that introduced many of the themes which recur in later films: a concern with ecology and the human impact on the environment; a fascination with aircraft and flight; pacifism, including an anti-military streak; feminism; and morally ambiguous characterizations, especially among villains.
In June 1985, Miyazaki, Takahata and Tokuma Shoten chairman Yasuyoshi Tokuma organized the animation production company Studio Ghibli with funding from Tokuma Shoten. His first film with Ghibli, "Laputa: Castle in the Sky" tells of two orphans looking for the legendary castle-island that floats above the clouds.
His next film; My Neighbor Totoro, tells of the adventure of two girls and their interaction with forest spirits; and Kiki's Delivery Service, tells the story of a small-town girl who leaves home to begin life as a witch in a big city. Miyazaki's fascination with flight is evident throughout these films, ranging from the ornithopters flown by pirates in Castle in the Sky, to the Totoro and the Cat Bus soaring through the air, and Kiki flying her broom.
His Most Acclaimed Film; Spirited Away
Spirited Away is the story of a girl, forced to survive in a bizarre spirit world, who works in a bathhouse for spirits after her parents are turned into pigs by the sorceress who owns it. The film was released on July 2001 and grossed ¥30.4 billion (approximately $300 million) at the box office. Critically acclaimed, the film was considered one of the best films of the 2000s. It won a Japan Academy Prize, a Golden Bear award at the 2002 Berlin Film Festival, and an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
His father was director of Miyazaki Airplane, which made rudders for A6M Zero fighter planes during World War II. This is probably what sparked and kindled his fascination for flight.
Miyazaki played a decisive role in developing structure, characters and designs for Animal Treasure Island and Alibaba and the Forty Thieves. He also helped in the storyboarding and key animating of pivotal scenes in both films.
