    Life after Pi - a documentary short film about creators of amazing special effects and the exploitative industry practice of Hollywood in using these talents with terrible contracts and subcontracts.

    remember the VFX company that went bankrupt at almost the same time as it won two Academy Awards?  it’s their story..

    The Wind Rises English version trailer - quite different in contents and tone than Japanese 風立ちぬ trailer in a nice way. 

    the “farewell masterpiece” theme is much more relatable as the protagonist and animator overlap naturally, so there is a simple storyline to focus on (and then maybe viewers would discover subtleties and a certain heaviness of theme once in movie theater..).
