A Moment with Makoto Shinkai
Posted by: Rai | June 22, 2012
Anime Network recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Makoto Shinkai, director of such memorable works as 5 Centimeters Per Second and The Place Promised in our Early Days. We're proud to share with you this brief moment with the famed director of the upcoming film Children Who Chase Lost Voices, the latest entry into his catalog of anime classics.
Here's a small excerpt from the full interview:
Q. What are some of your favorite movies?
Q. Were there any particularly challenging scenes in the movie?
A. Throughout the work, one of the things I really put effort into is the expression of the sky. There are a number of scenes where the passage of time can be seen in the setting of the sun - where perhaps a conversation starts in the late afternoon, and by the time the conversation is over, the sun has set. I feel that things like that are very important to convey well.
