Story/world Building Insight From Hayao Miyazaki

I consider Miyazaki one of the greatest storytellers of all time. This sixteen minute insight into how he thinks is golden. It may be from the perspective of an animator, but I can definitely see how it can be applied to writing in many ways.

Never seen a Miyazaki film, but now I want to! :D

You should. Some of the best storytelling out there. My personal favorites are Nausicaa, Howl's Moving Castle, and Princess Mononoke.

Are they on Netflix? :)

 

Anyways, I can see how this video can apply to writing. I especially loved that part on making emotion a priority :yes:

I'm afraid I don't know if any of them are. :( But yes, that emotion as a priority thing was awesome. I also found it interesting how he makes his movies, the way he builds each scene individually and then connects them rather than plotting the whole thing out at once.

They're not, unfortunately. I just went and checked. If I lived near you, I'd sit you down and let you watch my copies, but that's not an option, here. :P
