The Academy Museum Hayao Miyazaki Exhibit to Open Museum

But the Studio Ghibli filmmaker has never yet had a North American museum retrospective dedicated to his art and works. Until now. The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures announced that its inaugural exhibition will be Hayao Miyazaki, a retrospective on the filmmaker that explores each of Miyazaki’s animated feature films through his six-decade career and features original art, character designs, storyboards, and more. It will be the first time these 300-or-so objects will be available for public view outside of Japan. Japan gets a whole Ghibli Museum — and soon, a whole theme park — but us international Miyazaki fans have never gotten to see the wonderful art and sketches of favorite animated movies in person.

Mel Brooks' 'Young Frankenstein' Lovingly Torches Monster Movies

Though not all of his feature films are direct spoofs of specific films or genres, he made his name by skewering almost every convention of cinema. From Blazing Saddles to Spaceballs to Silent Movie, Brooks has achieved some of the best comic highs of any filmmaker.

The idea for Young Frankenstein didn’t start with Brooks, though. Academy Museum of Motion Pictures Details: Here's What to Know. “How could there be no film center in the global center of film?”

Today, /Film attended a virtual tour of the new facility and learned about the programs and exhibitions its executives and programmers have planned.

I Made 25 Dioramas Of Films I Love

Over the last 15 years, I have made (and sold) several thousand. The scale is a classic model railway—1:87, so figures are less than an inch high.

John Oliver on Monty Python: 'inspirational idiots who changed comedy' Writing about the importance of Monty Python is basically pointless.

John Oliver on Monty Python: 'inspirational idiots who changed comedy'

Citing them as an influence is almost redundant. It’s assumed. In fact, from now on it’s probably more efficient to say that comedy writers should have to explicitly state that they don’t owe a significant debt to Monty Python. And if someone does that, they’ll be emphatically wrong. This strange group of wildly talented, appropriately disrespectful, hugely imaginative and massively inspirational idiots changed what comedy could be for their generation and for those that followed.
