Um, this isn't Spielberg-related, but I thought it oughta belong here instead of making a new thread for it.
Has anyone here seen Hayao Miyazaki's movies? One of them in particular, Porco Rosso
, had a style that really stuck with me and my dad, and we both came to the conclusion that Miyazaki could probably animate a great Tintin movie. Porco Rosso's full of those grand sweeping panoramic shots of the Adriatic landscape and ocean, and the city scenes have a huge amount of detail and realism to them. Miyazaki's way of animating characters could also fit well, too--although it's anime, distinctly so, the way he draws his characters allows each of their personalities to be reflected in their image.
