Introducing my last project "Miyazaki's Heroines " a series of 9 different stories recreating the heroines of Hayao Miyazaki's (宮崎 駿, co-founder of Studio Ghibli ) films. Finding the characters through a more realistic, sincere and personal vision in a contemporary real life.
SOPHIE from "Howl's Moving Castle" (ハウルの動く城) / El Castillo Ambulante.
Mononoke from "Princess Mononoke "/ もののけ姫 /La Princesa Mononoke
Satsuki & Mei from "My Neighbour Totoro" / となりのトトロ / Mi Vecino Totoro
Ponyo from " Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea" / 崖の上のポニョ / Ponyo en el Acantilado
Sheeta from " Castle in the Sky" / 天空の城ラピュタ / El Castillo en el Cielo
Kiki from " Kiki's Delivery Service "/ 魔女の宅急便 / Nicky la aprendiz de Bruja
Chihiro from "Spirited Away" / 千と千尋の神隠し / El Viaje de Chihiro
Nausicaä from "Nausicaä of the Valley of the wind" / 風の谷のナウシカ / Nausicaä del Valle del Viento
Arrietty from " The Secret World of Arrietty"/ 借りぐらしのアリエッティ / Arrietty y el Mundo de los Diminutos
For closing this project, there is an "extra character". Even though this Ghibli film is not a Miyazaki movie (only as writer), I love Arrietty and I feel that she has the same qualities as another strong and independent heroine who is always fighting with all her heart for what she believes in. In the same way as the other heroines of this project, Miyazaki has always shown us a beautiful image of strong, kind and courageous women inside every film.
And that's why I wanted to embody these fantastic female characters in real girls, because we can all be our own heroine!
