I am an animator. I feel like I'm the manager of a animation cinema factory. I am not an executive. I'm rather like a foreman, like the boss of a team of craftsmen. That is the spirit of how I work.
People in Japan have experienced many tsunamis and various earthquakes throughout the ages.
Sometimes I test myself saying, 'If I get a death sentence if I don't make this movie, would I still make this movie?'
I do all my work by storyboard, so as I draw the storyboard, the world gets more and more complex, and as a result, my North, South, East, West directions kind of shift and go off base, but it seems like my staff as well as the audience, doesn't quite realize that this has happened. Don't tell them about it.
Animators can only draw from their own experiences of pain and shock and emotions.
