Hayao Miyazaki is trying to make a short with CG to screen at the Ghilbli Museum. He said "I intend to work until the day I die. I retired from feature-length films but not from animation.

If you are attending largest Computer Graphics event in Asia, SIGGRAPH Asia, in Kobe, Japan in November 2015, do take the opportunity to visit Ghilbli Museum in Tokyo.
