STUDIO GHIBLI SPECIAL
Projection of the films in VOSE

Studio Ghibli (スタジオジブリ Sutajio Jiburi) is a Japanese animation studio, considered by critics and many moviegoers as one of the best animation studios in the world today. The studio is best known for its animated feature films and has also produced several short films, television commercials, and a television movie. It was founded on June 15, 1985 by directors Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata and producer Toshio Suzuki, after the success of the Topcraft anime film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984). Studio Ghibli has also collaborated with video game studios on the visual development of various video games. Six of Studio Ghibli’s films are among the top 10 highest-grossing anime films made in Japan, with Spirited Away (2001) being the second highest, grossing over $360 million worldwide. Five of Studio Ghibli’s films have received Oscar nominations. Spirited Away won the Golden Bear in 2002 and the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2003. Totoro, a character from My Neighbor Totoro, is the studio’s mascot. In this cycle that we present to you in our special month of Manga, we bring you a selection of the best films of the studio. It will be presented with a small talk on Thursday, March 3 at 4:30 p.m. by the Nikaku Dan Manga Association.

CONCEPTS FOR THE CREATION OF COMPLETE CHARACTERS. WE CREATE OUR IDEAL CHARACTER.

Tired of manga always having the same type of protagonist? Do you have a great idea but when you project it it sounds like a copy of any other main character? Well this is your course. We will study in a simple and quick way what to take into account before creating a character and how to give it a roll so that it is a bit out of the norm of the most popular classic characters. We will try to create a hero and a villain, and we will see what tricks to use to enrich their character.

MANGA FEATURES AND CHARACTER CREATION.

This talk will discuss the genres of Manga, its narrative model and visual style that make it something different from Western comics. We’ll also look at the type of characters within those genres, and learn what we need to create a character.

THE IMPORTANCE OF COMPOSITION IN ILLUSTRATION.

Workshop by the illustrator Irina Hirondelle focused on composition, both for beginners and for illustrators or cartoonists who feel blocked when dealing with the proper order of the elements in their illustrations. Learn to give dynamism, grace and balance to your illustrations and guide the other’s eye through them.

‘KIMONO: LEARN ABOUT TRADITIONAL JAPANESE CLOTHING’.

FIRST STEPS IN THE MANGA STYLE. PUT YOUR FACE ON YOUR PROTAGONIST.

Now that we know how to give our main character a good background, we only have to put a face on it. In this workshop we will see the most common manga styles that exist and we will try to identify what are the characteristics that make them stand out and be recognizable. Once decided, we will make a quick character sheet with how we think our main character would be based on his personality.

EXPRESS JAPANESE COURSE.
Japanese in anime and manga.
A workshop in which we will learn greetings and basic Japanese language phrases through anime and manga characters. In addition, you will be able to find out about the online resources that the Foundation makes available to you.

KAWAII Chibi. LET’S BECOME KAWAIIS.

This workshop will be the one that unites all the others and, instead of being the coolest, it will be the most fun. Let’s go back to our super evil villain Kawaii, let’s put blushes on him and a chubby little body, you’ll see how he’s not so scary anymore.

THE FIRST CHAPTER OF YOUR MANGA.

In the process of creating Team Phoenix I have learned that the first chapter of a manga has to contain very concrete information, and explained in a very emotional way. I will tell you about my experience in this series and I will give you the keys that have been most useful to me.

HOW TO MAKE A MANGA AND NOT GIVE UP IN THE ATTEMPT.

Talk about the step-by-step process of creating a manga, explaining the different phases of development, and the use of different techniques, both manual and digital. We will talk about multiple resources and advice to carry out the work and, finally, guidance will be given for those who want to take the step of publishing their work.
