One Film Per Blog

One of the great films of this summer was Byƍsoku 5 Cm (5 Cm Per Second). The director, Shinkai Makoto, has produced a number of infamous works including Voices of a Distant Star and The Place Promised in our Early Days.

If you haven't seen some of Shinkai's earlier short films, take a look. Here's one, the award winning, She and Her Cat, that transformed his career from voice actor to director and animator:

This was Shinkai's first animated short, which he completed on his home computer!

Shinkai is a fan of Miyazaki Hayao, and, in fact, has been called the new Miyazaki, a term which he dislikes thoroughly. If you have seen any of Shinkai's work, you know he is a fantastic artist and his avant-garde films are always clever and thought-provoking.

Some other works of interest include:
Other Worlds
