WHEN 2D MEETS 3D: Tribute to Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki
Just like any aspiring animator out there, Animator “Dono” has demonstrated his love for Studio Ghibli by taking his time to create a tribute for Hayao Miyazaki — aka one of the world’s greatest animators in history. Clipping characters out from various Ghibli films and placing them into beautiful 3D backdrops, Dono has created something that is absolutely mesmerising.
Just imagine all the time and effort that took him to assemble the animation together! If this animation isn’t enough to prove a fan’s absolute devotion to Miyazaki, then we don’t know what is. To view the original HQ video: https://vimeo.com/134668506
