Comparing specifically film and animation works between Miyazaki Hayao & Shinkai Makoto, discovering how they use and encompass Japanese culture, beauty, and lifestyle to bring their hand-drawn movies to life. In this 12 minute video, I hope to portray the beautiful world that is Japan today, and how many artists and film directors alike draw inspiration and ideas to produce wonderful works of art - all of which could be watched today.
