Making of Princess Mononoke - Hayao Miyazaki
An extensive documentary film (with English subtitles) on the making-of Hayao Miyazaki's animated film "Princess Mononoke" has been posted online . This is an excellent overview of the making of a major animated film. Watch it while you can. Sometimes these things don't stay up for long :
By the way, did you know that Miyazaki's newest animated film "Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea" is the most successful film in Japan for 2009, having already made ¥14.2 billion yen = $134.6 million dollars as of September 28, 2008 ? (that is in Japan alone) . Ponyo is slated for release in North America in 2009 by the Walt Disney Co.
