Princess Mononoke

During the filmmaking process, storyboard drawing is an important part to help the director use the variation of the film more effectively. But for Miyazaki collected works, this passage comes back, especially important and meaningful, because he rarely has a pre-built script, instead just built the story in the spontaneous direction but even then he also doesn’t know the end of the story.

In an interview in 2002, Miyazaki said, “I didn’t really prepare a script or a complete story before I made a movie.” He added: “Usually I don’t have time to prepare the script. Therefore, the story will build and develop the details in the process of drawing the scene by itself. Production of the film will take place as soon as a storyline is unified. We almost never know how the story will end, how it will unfold, but the filmmaking process continues as the story progresses.” For Miyazaki, he is not the film’s creator, but the film itself. Although Miyazaki himself is aware that this approach has many risks and shortcomings, but it has also contributed to the creation of world-famous works of Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki movie collection, notably the movie Spirited Away with the The character is full of depth and human significance, but there is no complete script.
