The second trailer for NEVER-ENDING MAN: HAYAO MIYAZAKI has been released!
Miyazaki smokes like a chimney and has retired a number of times, only to come back soon after. From what I've seen before, he’s kind of an asshole perfectionist.
“NEVER-ENDING MAN: HAYAO MIYAZAKI follows formerly-retired film director and animator Hayao Miyazaki as he experiments for the first time with CGI. Miyazaki is a Japanese film director, producer, screenwriter, animator, author, and manga artist. In 1985 he co-founded Studio Ghibli and went on to direct highly influential and acclaimed animated films such as Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away - which won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2003. Miyazaki's critical and commercial success continued through his final run of films including Howl's Moving Castle, Ponyo, and The Wind Rises. After the 2013 release of The Wind Rises, he announced his retirement from directing, however his endlessly inventive mind has turned towards new creative avenues.”
The documentary hits select theaters December 13th & 18th.
