The hand of the artist is the most important and underrated thing in all arts and this is why I will always try to maintain as much control as possible over my own camera work.

As soon as he takes his hands off the tool and gets the CG artists to copy his style, something of his personality gets lost in translation. Subtle things like whiskers, a fur, a few lines out of place... And then comes A.I. based animation...even worse!! A classic scene in this where he lets rip at the creators pitching the technique to him.

Just goes to show, even with so much technology out there and even AI, CGI still has a long way to go to touch the human soul in terms of the visuals of the best hand-drawn animation (especially movement related aspects).

Mononoke Hime is my favorite film ever made. I hope he keeps creating. Documentary was a very interesting look at his current outlook and work.

Edit: I do not understand how the group pitching that software could be so clueless to how he would respond to the movement example. Did they do ANY research before coming up for the pitch??
