                  I chose the animater Hayao Miyazaki because he made a lot of animated  movies from the 1980's. He is a animator pioneer because of his animated movies. He wanted to create animated movies so later in his years he created a lot of famous movies before he was known as one of the greatest Japanese animators in Japan.




                Hayao Miyazaki was born in January 5th, 1941 in Tokyo, Japan. In 1965, he had a son named Akemi Ota and now is a grandfather of his son's children.  In 1971, he went to a studio with another animator called Isao Takahata. Then in 1973, he moved to another company and made his first TV-Show "Future Boy Conan." After his show he made his first movie "Castle of Cagliostro." In 1984, he made his second movie "Nausicaa and the Valley of the Wind" from a comic(manga). Because of the movie, it led to a new animation studio called Studio Ghibili. There, he made "Castle in the Sky", "My Neighbor Totoro", "Kiki's Delivery Service", and other movies. Because of his  movies he won 21 awards from his great movies. He is now retired but, his movies still are one of the best animated movies the world has seen from Hayao Miyazaki's films and animations.
