A Need to Know
Emru Townsend · From fps #3 · July 1, 2005 | One of the things I enjoy the most about this job is the sheer amount of stuff I learn. Sometimes it's a little bit of trivia (the full name of the antagonist in Rock & Rule, referred to throughout the movie as simply Mok, is Mok Swagger, in a nod to one of his inspirations); sometimes it's something more profound (the new facets of the anime industry I learned while speaking with fellow SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival juror Shuzo John Shiota).

Then there's the pleasure of watching other people learn, of seeing their eyes light up as new possibilities come to them. I've been seeing that a lot lately, thanks to the recent release of Howl's Moving Castle. When I tell people about Miyazaki's other films, there's invariably one movie that connects with them, just based on its description.

Want to read the rest of this editorial?

You'll find it and many other articles in the July 2005 issue of fps, available as a free download.
