Conversations on Ghibli Has Moved (Duh)

As you can gather, I've moved the Ghibli blog to a new address, one that's much simpler to remember and spell out. Everything is the same and nothing has been lost. The address is now

Please make the necessary adjustments for your links and bookmarks. I've kept the old address as a splash page to send you over here, just to make things as easy as possible.

I was thinking about this while mulling over plans for the weekly podcast project. I realized I needed a shorter web address, one that would be quicker to jot down and memorize. Thankfully, "GhibliCon" was available, so here we are. Note to self: hurry up and secure "GhibliPodcast" before it's too late...

The one aspect I've always disliked in all Anime was the flat cel-paint look. It's not much of a criticism for the Miyazaki films, since they're so well designed, but I look forward to seeing what he will do with animated watercolors. Perhaps the films will be even closer to his beautiful storyboards.

An interesting point, as always, but I don't think this first shot was intended as a shot from the film. Instead, it was most likely from the storyboards. How this translates into the final films? I guess we'll find out eventually.

But Ghibli has done a lot with that watercolor style pioneered on Yamadas, including the Ghiblies shorts, the House Foods commercials, the beverage and newspaper ads, and that terrific "Dore Dore" music video - all of which appear on the Short Short DVD.
