    I have always wanted to do a music video tribute to Miyazaki ever since I got my Studio Ghibli Laser disk box set about 3 years ago. Trouble was I never could find a song worthy.

    When I finally diecided to make the video, Loreena McKennitt's Murmmers' Dance seemed to be the perfect choice. Originally I started to use the short version, but found I could not make my concept fit and therefore went to the extended 6 minute version.

    I spent well over 3 months assembling this video. The planning and video clip capturing alone took one month.

    I wanted to show the different themes of Miyazaki and how he has incorporated them in his work. From the start I planned to use a Photo Album like approach since I though how one remembers memories when looking at photographs. I used extensive use of Photoshop to create the photographs that changed to the animated scene. I then used After Effects to zoom out and show all the photographs.

    This video had a ton of overlapping effects such as Porco Rosso's plane flying accross the Tigermoth from Laputa or the Angel from On Your Mark flying into the sky with the Tigermoth.
