Dive into the Incredible Worldbuilding of Studio Ghibli!

Photographer Asher Isbrucker recently posted a great exploration of Studio Ghibli’s filmography called “The Immersive Realism of Studio Ghibli.” While Ghibli’s films have become legendary because of their complex characters and iconic fantasy creatures like Totoro and No-Face, Isbrucker looks beyond the obvious stars of the films to focus on the background. By looking at tiny details like storefronts, light quality, and even how different characters run, Isbrucker shows us an often overlooked aspect of Ghibli’s worldbuilding.

Click through for the full video, but be sure to set some time aside for a Ghibli marathon, because you’re going to want to watch Spirited Away again after you see this.
