This class will expose students who might not already be aware of environmental ethics to various principles and show how knowledge of the natural world around them could develop into a career in cartoon animation.
Students will watch four films by acclaimed Japanese film director, producer, screenwriter, animator, author, and manga artist Hayao Miyazaki and the studio he co-founded, Studio Ghibli: The Secret World of Arrietty (G), Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (PG), Princess Mononoke (PG 13), and Tales from Earthsea (PG 13). We will introduce various ecological principles and discuss how they play out in the films, discuss Miyazaki's career development, and offer guidance on how to begin training to become an animated filmmaker at the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction. Even if you don't have an interested in filmmaking or environmental ethics, the films are beautifully made and will provide an enjoyable evening. Please feel free to come for one or all four film presentations!
