Woops, I almost forgot about this in my quest for tomorrow’s topic, but today is the birthday of the one and only Hayao Miyazaki, whose now 70 years young!
All I can say is that I love this guy’s films. After catching a few on Cartoon Network some years back, it was love at first sight. He’s by far one of the best animation directors alive and his film Spirited Away is perhaps my most favourite of all. On top of all that, he’s served as an inspiration for countless animators on both sides of the Pacific for which he is rightly acknowledged for through his friend, John Lasseter.
