Ghibli: One month of work for a minute of film

from Matthias Brückle
The legendary Ghibli animation studio stands for quality worldwide, above all because of the legendary filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, who has produced the greatest Ghibli hits. However, we have to wait a few more years for his new and probably last film.

In an interview about Studio Ghibli's new anime film, producer and studio chairman Toshio Suzuki revealed how the project is progressing. The film How do you live? of the anime rock Hayao Miyazaki is about a 15-year-old boy who has to move to his uncle after the death of his father. A spiritual hike awaits him there, in which the book "How Do You Live?" matters.

Actually wanted to the Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki say goodbye to retirement in 2013, but he wants to leave one last film for his grandsonwho prepares him for the fact that his grandfather doesn't live forever – but loves him.

Only 36 minutes of Ghibli's new film finished

Suzuki reveals that after three years of production, 37 minutes of the film have now been completed – despite 60 animators. For comparison: The legendary children's film My Neighbor Totoro was finished with eight animators after only eight months! Blame it on the combination of hand-drawn animations with a higher frame rate: a second in the film requires significantly more pictures than was the case with Totoro. As Magnum Opus, that "big, fantastic" , those in charge at Ghibli want Miyazaki's last film to not simply deliver what they are used to. So the artist only creates one minute of animation a month, but it is hoped that the film will be ready in the next three years.
