That Time Hayao Miyazaki Directed A Sci-Fi Music Video

And when I say “music video,” I mean “a short film that’s got more going for it than most feature-length movies.” The story goes that when Miyazaki was working on Princess Mononoke in 1995, he came down with a case of writer’s block. To give his brain a break, he directed this video accompaniment to the song “On Your Mark,” performed by Japanese music duo Chage and Aska. The end result is a remarkable display of compact storytelling — beautiful, stirring, and well worth your time.
