As Nors Creative team, our second guest in the "Inspirations" series; HAYAO MİYAZAKI

"The fact that he takes the ideas in his films from daily life, from the natural structure, reflects this to a fantastic world and does not show absurdity in any way is a master work. When I watch his animations, I see a part of me in every character. It opens the door to a world built with emotions. I look at the characters as if looking in a mirror and find myself in that fantastical." I find the events in the world while living and struggling. The colors, music, places, the harmony of the characters and the story that they use are a great source of inspiration to me with their natural and fantastic contrast. Every time I watch it, I feel different meanings and different feelings. I never feel the same taste. The same dream is completely different. It's like I'm seeing it with feelings. He constantly tried and observed. He started directing at a very young age. It tells the inner journey of an individual who has created his own philosophy for each film. His imagination is as pure unlimited as a child's imagination. Every step of his work feels like sailing to a free world."
