So it’s now official :
Studio Ghibli is stopping production of animated feature films, according to producer Toshio Suzuki on MBS channel,
But it’s not the end of Studio Ghibli.
According to my informations, they will keep a small staff for Hayao Miyazaki projects.
And also the “Momonoma” department, which is Yoshiyuki Momose staff for production of commercials, music videos …
Momonoma artists are already freelance, and this is the reality : most of Studio Ghibli staff today are employees, with long term contracts.
Studio Ghibli can’t pay this staff if there’s no more Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata (expensive but profitable) movies on the way.
Ghibli cost too much today, so they’re just stopping the current system.
Before Porco Rosso, Studio Ghibli staff was freelance.
They’re coming back to this previous system.
It’s a restart, like Hoshino and Suzuki said.
Now they will focus on licensing, and Ghibli Museum.
And wait for new viable projects.

So let’s wait & see.

Note : French magazines Le Monde and Liberation already talked about this information many months ago.

This is sad news.

So the only reasonable way I saw fit to calm my feelings about this movie was a simple solution. DRAW ALL THE DRAGONS. Guys go see HTTYD 2, hands down it was probably the best animated film I’ve seen in a while.

The Box Trolls (Sep. 26 1014)

International trailer, Laika Studio

I do love it when an animated film comes out (Dragon 2), it means more animated film trailers!

Just… just… Let me die, why is everything so good. Animation could not be better, we’ve left the dark ages and this brave new world makes me so excited.

And a big thank you to all the fans who purchased one.

My Bee and Puppycat cover! It’s my first Boom cover and I had a lot of fun doing it!

This is beyond exciting
