Survey of Animation Write-Up Repsonse 4

For my fourth Survey of  Animation response post I watched the film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. The film was produced in 1984 by Hayao Miyazaki. It was created by Studio Ghibli and is considered to be the first in there line of films.  The films was created in 9 months, only on a budget of one million.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is a film based on a manga of the same name. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind was inspired from a variety of folklore, including The Princess Who Loved Insects and other tales such as The Odyssey.  

          Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind uses cell animation for the film. The technique of cell animation was used for a lot of movies at that time. The type of animation is used for a majority of the film. This film also reuses cycles in earlier scenes. The same sequence would be used again, but with a different background, or simply reused to expand on dialogue.
          All in all, the film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind  incorporated many techniques  commonly used by animations created at that time. Its style has been one of various other films made at that time.
