Cultivating Unparalleled Realism In A World Of Animation


Studio Ghibli is the tenacious animation revolutionary we have been longing for. From tender and lighthearted films like My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service, to the deep and challenging Princess Mononoke, Studio Ghibli has inspired the hearts of every one of their viewers. 

What really makes a great animated film? Is it the artistry of hand drawing each frame, or the countless hours of studying nature and how it operates? The makers at Studio Ghibli have grasped what it means to touch our heart strings and create a world of realism and sincerity, even in the animated.

YouTube channel, kaptainkristian, made a video showcasing the revolutionary power Studio Ghibli has imassed from taking everyday sound and something as seemingly miniscule as crowds of people to immerse us in worlds that feel like home. 

Take a look at this video, and see for yourself the awesome creativity and innovative detail that goes into each one of their films, and hopefully open yourself up to a new appreciation for animated film.
