So I recently saw The Wind Rises by Hayao Miyazaki last week and let me tell you a thing: I LOVED IT!! I’ve heard through people and the internet that this will be Miyazaki’s “farewell film” and I just hope that it isn’t because in all honesty, I simply love his work and I don’t want him to leave! Anyway at the basement of the El Capitan (which is where I got the chance to see the film), there was literally a room of Miyazaki’s past work behind glass cases (see My Neighbor Totoro photo) and then a wall of The Wind Rises stills across from it. As you can see, these were the “best” photos that I could take of the exhibit (which is super sad in my opinion). Anyway there were literally these little books (see The Secret World of Arrietty photo) of the animation process of certain films like Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, etc. and they would have been PERFECT to show you guys but my phone’s camera quality literally sucks so you guys wouldn’t even be able to see the stills… Anyway but yeah this is what I was able to capture and I just wanted to share it with you!
