I wanted to make a simple gif of Howl and Sophie looking at the stars :), I really enjoyed making this tiny animation <3
y’know people make fun of Ghibli tears… but I think they aren’t made to portray what they look like on others, but instead how they feel like to us, when WE cry. Doesn’t it always feel much bigger/vision impeding when it happens to us as we experience it?
One of Hayao Miyazaki’s notable trademarks
I rewatched only yesterday last week, which is what mostly influenced my ghibli jam submission; the past of ghibli cheering itself on to new and greater things!
whether you are optimistic about the miyazaki-absent future of ghibli or not, there’s no denying that they’ll continue to make beautiful films in the future.
Though we slipped apart like sunlight through the leaves,
the promise of love will live on eternally.
"I do believe in the power of story. I believe that stories have an important role to play in the formation of human beings, that they can stimulate, amaze and inspire their listeners." - Hayao Miyazaki
