Why did I choose Hayao Mizayaki?
As a child, watching movies together with my family was the best experience I would have ever had. Though I loved the creativity of the scenes within the movies, the most inspirational pieces of cinematics I had watch were Studio Ghibli's animations. They were filled with fantasy and heartwarming characters that come to life in the films. The animation style was very lovable to watch. It seemed as if I was living in the movie as it played. Picking Hayao Mizayaki of Studio Ghibli would be reasonable for his works are the ones that inspired me the most.
