In Spirited Away, Miyazaki’s young protagonist Chihiro starts as a whiny, passive child, but the story forces her to grow up or give up, creating a bildungsroman of bravery and selflessness.
Miyazaki’s Spirited Away: Growing Organic Characters, from StoryForge Productions
It’s the weekend. Technically it’s time to be done with work. But what am I doing? Writing an article on storytelling and character growth in Spirited Away! Why? Because I love stories, Miyazaki, and StoryForge.
The article is already over 2,000 words, so it’s time to pull back and start chopping to the heart of the issue. That movie is so complex and wonderful; it’s hard to stop adding to the analysis!
In this video, StoryForge introduces many of the new projects that are coming out this year! Please watch, and keep an eye on the website and Facebook page for updates!
As you can probably tell, the people working on StoryForge are passionate about their craft and excited to help you actualize your dreams. And yes, I am in this video. I haven’t done much filming before, so it’s always an interesting experience. And fun, because the StoryForge peoples are always fun.
