Disregarding the fact he's one of my favorite artists, he sounds like a well rounded guy  Very Happy

Thanks again for these insights Angry ... I never would have dreamed that when I started these forums up that I'd have such a good group of folks on the forums. Also, to have a first hand account of Mr Shinkai is like a Shinkai-moment for all of us who've read your accounts.

In the two pamphlets that came from the Voices/Place Promised Boxes, each Shinkai interview ends with him hoping that he's touched someone by his works, even if it's just one person. I hope he realizes that he's touched so many of us. He's truly a remarkable artist.

Shinkai's a little to modest some times! As for people saying he's the next Miyazaki, it's hard to compair the two since they both do completly differnet things, there both amazeing artists.

I agree this is a nice forum with a good crowd.

Very cool! I'm curious how does Shinkai and his animators go along animating the backgrounds? Does Shinkai paint over the photo's he takes and manipulates them? Are the backgrounds drawn out in some sort of key frame then painted? 3-d programs? Most likely a little bit of all haha, still curious tho  Very Happy


First off, I am happy for ookami that he got to meet Mr. Shinkai in person. Not many people will have a chance to do that  Sad  And secondly, to address Menasha, the technique is called "rotoscoping." It's invented by the Fleischer Brothers somewhere in the late 1910s if I'm not wrong, first used in Betty Boop cartoons and Koko the Clown.

Hmmm yes, I learned the term by chance actually when I was looking up a movie that used "rotoscopeing" techniques. Thank you however, you are a helpful person haha.
