Vengo in aiuto a Kaorj postando il commento completo di Goro Miyazaki riguardo all'opposizione del padre alla sua direzione di Gedo Senki.
(Chiedo scusa in anticipo se qualcuno lo aveva già fatto)
"2005 December 13th
Introductory message - "My father was against this"
This may sound abrupt , but my father (Hayao Miyazaki) was against me directing Gedo Senki. However, first I would like to make something clear. To be honest I never desired to open a diary on the Internet and come out in front of everybody. If I had something that I wanted to tell with my own voice, it would be, "I want you to watch the work I have completed", that's all. My desire as a director is to "have people watch Gedo Senki with direct feelings and no idle thoughts", that's all.
However, once the promotion for Gedo Senki started, regardless to weither you like it or not, the adjective of me, the director, also being "Hayao Miyazaki's son" will be applied. In response to that, the conclusion that producer Toshio Suzuki reached was of course to "answer with the work itself", but also "in order to compete with the work itself, people should look at Goro Miyazaki as an individual person, not as "Hayao Miyazaki's son"." After considering all of these things I too agreed with that view.
In short I decided to try to experiment, even if the order is backwards, to have people watch the work Gedo Senki without preconceptions by expressing what I was thinking as a director through this diary. As for choosing to use the internet as a method to express my thoughts the foremost reason is because it is a medium that can connect with people most directly. Of course, ideas such as accepting media interviews or press conferences, as has been done before, were also considered, but I felt that in order to carry out the above-mentioned experiment, I would be able to express my ideas in a more frank manner by not working through the filter of the media.
As I stated in the beginning, I will not impetuously state the reason why my father was against me directing this film. I think I should reveal that as I describe the path which led me to work as a director and the daily production status. Lastly, there are two reasons why I took on the direction of Gedo Senki. The first one is that I felt attraction towards the story of Gedo Senki. The second one is that I noticed something in me, that it was difficult to brush away the feelings I had toward animation that I had pretended not to notice until now, for reasons including the relationship with my father. I don't want to talk specifically about the content of the movie before it is released, but the theme that I wish to express through the movie come out clearly: "What is it to live honestly these days?" That is the way of life that I wish follow and it is also the theme of this diary.
