"DESSINS DU STUDIO GHIBLI, Les secrets du Layout pour comprendre l’animation de Takahata & Miyazaki

The Layout secrets to understand the animation of Takahat&Miyazaki

 Original poster 

I wanted so bad to see this exposition .. I am really glad i was able to do so eventually !
It was on the last week-end of the exhibition in Paris, France, the 28Feb-1srtMarch 2015, and my boyfriend accepted to follow me in this fan-roadtrip 

For the first time ever in Europe, StudioGhibli and their main artists Hayao Miyazaki & Isao Takahata, exposed the original layouts (the drawings that make the movie) of almost every movies they made.
The layouts were already exposed before, but only in Japan and HongKong : so it was a real honor to see the origins of such wonderful movies, here in our Occidental part of the world ...

The museum itself is quite an art piece :

So there was about 1300 drawings on the walls, showing the making of the movies we all love (those are the ones i have personally seen) :
:bulletblue: Princess Mononoke, 1997
:bulletpink: My neighbour Totoro, 1988
:bulletorange: Spirited Away (Le voyage de Chihiro), 2001
:bulletyellow: Nausicaä and the valley of the wind (Nausicaä), 1984
:bulletred: Kiki's delivery service (Kiki la petite sorcière), 1989
:bulletpurple: Howl's moving castle (Le château ambulant), 2004
:bulletblue: The secret world of Arietty (Arietty le petit monde des chapardeurs), 2010 ... 

This is what it looked like inside the museum [taking photo inside was forbidden] :

I took those photos outside ... you get the feeling ^^
