Miyazaki Goro in TIFF 2011

Konbachiwa oTOMOdachi! Minna genki?? I haven't been posting updates in AGES! Well, I'm still alive and kicking. It's just that there's nothing much for me to say so that's why I haven't been posting updates.

Miyazaki Goro in TIFF 2011

Ok, a few of you might know I go to TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) every year. For some reason TIFF has chosen Miyazaki Goro's From Up On Poppy Hill to be shown on their opening day of the event. Since this is only Goro's 2nd movie and his 1st being chosen by TIFF, he came over to join us in the screening. For those who doesn't know him, he's the son of, the one and only, Miyazaki Hayao, founder of Studio Ghibli.

Yes, I am a Ghibli fan as well as a JE fan.(^人^) Anyways, I went to see the screening of From Up On Poppy Hill「コクリコ坂から」and I have to say that I like it. I actually like it a lot! Goro-san has made this movie way way WAY better than Tales From Earthsea! Having said that, I not only enjoyed the movie, but also enjoyed even more in his Q&A session. He has explained a lot about his style and how it's different from his dad's style. Anyways, I have recorded "most" of his Q&A session. Missed recording the 1st question and didn't made it till the end cuz my SD card was full. Sorry about that, but being able to watch most of the Q&A is beter than not being able to watch at all, so I'm sharing the vids here.

Q&A Part 1
You can't hear anything at first because the interpreter was interpreting the 1st question to Goro-san, but I assure you there's sound on the vid and you'll be able to hear it. σ(^_^;)

Q&A Part 2

I have to say that Goro-san is a very funny guy. He is currently developing his own style as a director, which is very different from his dad's. He knows exactly what he wants to do and he understands that his dad wouldn't like it, but he's standing by his beliefs. Good Job Goro-san!

Enjoy! ♪(*^^)o∀*∀o(^^*)♪
