  • Comments: Of all of Miyazaki's work, Laputa is probably my most favorite and the best anime movie I've seen. I have always wanted to do a video to it and eventually ended up using it in my Memories Dance video. It was then that I was listening to my music collection and the song "I'll Stand by You" played and almost immediately I thought of nothing else except Laputa. Hence I decided to used the song and make a video very dear to my heart of what I thought was the best theme of the movie, the relationship and dedication of Sheeta and Pazu to one another.

    Since I noticed that the song slowly builds up over time (the music starts off softer and slower and then goes up from there) I built up the video to a climatic part profiling their relationship other the vast battle that occurs on Laputa. By this I wanted to convey that through all the rough and emotional times, their dedication and love for one another will always prevail. This I think is the essence that makes it stand out and make it one of the best works of Miyazaki.
