I consider Studio Ghibli as one of my many sources of inspiration. Thereâ€™s a lot in their cache of animated films that are either so creatively done (in both technical and story-wise aspects) or very heartwarming and sincere. One of my favorite films theyâ€™ve made is Howlâ€™s Moving Castle, as it combines steampunk, romance and magic all in one animated film.
Being too left behind with Studio Ghibli’s projects, I just recently saw a trailer of their 2010 animated film, The Secret World of Arrietty. This prompted me to look back at their films (maybe do a marathon sometime soon) and make a collection of fan art inspired from several Studio Ghibli films.
Studio Ghibliâ€™s films mainly have realism influences in them. Having dynamic characters that are able to evolve midway through the story arc or a story that has no clear antagonist, but has a character that initially have evil inclinations but are redeemed through unique quality in them (a la Robin Hood) or through a deed they do in during the latter part of the story (someone like Severus Snape or a (Hero Antagonist).
Thereâ€™s also the conscious effort in saving/preserving the environment. The film Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind focuses on the environmental harm a war creates, while the film Spirited Away uses pollution and cleaning it as a Good vs. Evil struggle. There different elements in Studio Ghibli films that touch environmental issues that we have today â€“ Princess Mononoke and Castle in the Sky.
Studio Ghibliâ€™s has produced a number of high quality films and is considered to be one of the leading animation studios in the world. Do you have some stories to share about any Studio Ghibli film? Tell us your story in comments below.
