The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness (Miyazaki documentary)

Post by Marji4x » Sat Jan 21, 2017 11:54 am

Guys!!! This is on Netflix and it's pretty great!

If you're into the work of Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki, this is a very interesting documentary they did during the filming and release of "The Wind Rises" and just before Miyazaki's "retirement" (lol he'll never retire).

Also watching this made me want to work on my latest shot for Wolf, so it's a good motivator xD

It's really beautifully filmed and introspective. And you get to see the studio and all the workspaces and stuff, which is a real treat for animators and artists to see.

I saw this and it's bloody amazing, one of my favorite documentaries about movies, period. Actually damn near moved me to tears near the end with the segment of him explaining why he chose animation and they splice in clips of his films in chronological order... holy moly. Chills, the whole time.

YES it was very moving! He's so intense it's neat to get a peek into his mind a bit.
