Hayao Miyazaki was born in Tokyo, Japan on January 5, 1941. To what we know Miyzaki as today: a director, producer, animator, and storyteller, everyone has a beginning.

Miyazaki’s career started in a family business called Miyzaki Airplanes, where warplanes were manufactured to help the Japanese during World War II. It was in 1958, where he began his interest in animation, after witnessing Japan’s first color feature-length production by Toei Animation, Hakujaden. This inspired Miyazaki to want to be a comic book artist. After graduating Gakushuin University, he pursued his love for the arts. Later down the road, Miyazaki worked as an animator for Toei Animation, where he learned the basics of animation and began climbing the artistic ladder. Toei Animation was so impressed by his works; they promoted him to become an animation leader. Miyazaki’s then released his first co-film with Tasui Otsuka and Isao Takahata, Prince of the Sun.

By the 70s, Miyazaki jumped from studio to studio, ranging from A Pro, and Zuiyo Pictures. It was then where Miyazaki became a figure in the animation industry.

In 1984, with the help of Tokma production, Miyzaki released Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. The film was not a smash hit, but made very good profits in the box office. And due to this, Studio Ghibli was formed.

Studio Ghibli’s reputation rests on Miyazaki’s accomplishments. It was here where Miyazaki produced his award winning films. Such films include: Laputa: Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Howl’s Moving Castle, and more.

Miyazaki’s success sky rocketed, reaching an international level. He created some of the most successful films in Japanese history and established himself as an equal to Walt Disney.

In the beginning, Hayao considered himself a true manga artist as he would practice drawing anime throughout his life and learned the basics of art. His inspirations stemmed from Osamu Tezuka (father of anime and manga), Tetsuji Fukushima and Sanpei Shirato. It was his later interest in animation that began to inspire his own distinct art style.

Hayao Miyazaki’s art style is unique, distinct and combines both Japanese (anime/manga) and American animation together. Many of his films are diversely stylized, mainly due to the fact that Miyazaki traveled to many different places as a child. He uses a mix of innovative animation techniques to produce amazing landscapes, scenery, and environmentalism.

Anime/Manga is very similar when compared to animation. Pencil sketches are made, and then inked, the sketch is filled with shadow, and then colored: just like animation. The difference lies in movement and the actual backgrounds. In animation, the backgrounds are painted on thin sheets of celluloid (cels) and the characters are layered on top. In anime, all objects and characters are drawn onto one cel and movement is done by repeating the process and scrolling through each image.

Anime and American cartoons differ in which anime is drawn at 15-20 cels per second, while American cartoons are drawn at 5 cels per second. The difference in having more cels per second results in a higher quality animation and a more lifelike appearance. Also, CGI has recently grown in popularity and is being implemented into developing high quality graphics for animation.

Miyazaki’s animation gives insight into how it can stray away from traditional forms of Japanese animation.
