Miyazaki’s Static Camera

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 19, 2011 by eddie

I am very behind in my animated film watching.  I’ll come clean…the last feature I saw was Wallace and Grommit and the Were-Rabbit-thingy.

Yes – I know, I know.

But I recently got to watch Miyazaki’s ‘Ponyo’.  What a great, magical film.  Aside from the fantastic animation, narrative and color pallette, one thing struck me;  Miyazaki’s camera doesn’t move.  Hardly any truck ins/outs, maybe a couple of scenes with a slight multiplane effect.

He really does let the animation provide the film’s movement.
