This might be a little bit embarrassing as a Mod, but I wasn't entirely sure if this warrants a new Thread, and if, where to put it, lol. After deliberation, I came to the conclusion that it might be discussion worthy and putting it into the YouTuber thread might be too much of a stretch.

So there is this guy right now doing a shot for shot breakdown/analysis of Evangelion Episode 1. And this guy not only knows what he's talking about, since he clearly learned the craft of film-making, he furthermore is able to pass on his knowledge. This makes him able to offer real insight on what idea or emotion Anno might have wanted to convey cinematically. Simultaneously, he's explaining all the craft and techniques that went into storyboarding in particular. It's very enlightening to be honest - once again boosting my respect for the sheer directorial prowess and care Anno put into his work. I mean, I always felt that Anno has an innate rhythm in terms of cinematic language many other directors lack, but having it explained shot for shot what Anno does to achieve that honestly boggled my mind. The only mystery left for me now is, how the actual ratio between sheer genius talent and hard work Hideaki Anno's oeuvre is.

Anno Cinema discussed quite a wide array of other Anno works too! So I highly recommend checking this guy out!

He's done some of Kare Kano now, and many other works. It's a fascinating collection of comments.

I love this guy. I've followed him for quite a bit on Instagram and try to leave comments when he touches on something that peaks my interest. He has insight on cinematography that has helped myself review the series with fresh eyes. I wish he would show up here.

AnnoCinema did a whopping 3 1/2 hour long podcast with a guy who was a PA on Shin Godzilla. If you're interested in how Anno works, this is perfect for you :)

Anno Cinema posted a translated version of that video of Anno and Miyazaki in the desert.
Turns out they roast each other..
