PONYO: Behind the Scenes

Frame-by-frame & Motion Graphics Animation

This sequence is part of a Visual Essay that a group of animators created within a collaborative team detailing the behind the curtains look at the making of Ponyo by Studio Ghibli, our chosen animated feature film production.

 

Each animator based their bit of animation on a quote about the production of the film. I have always been inspired by colour and how artists use it, hence my quote was Director Miyazaki's: I wanted to make it a simple story and to show simplicity through the colors. Also, since the main character is red, a goldfish, I didn’t want her colors to overwhelm the other colors, so the other colors had to be bright as well.
