Friendly as he is, Suzuki also gave them an interview Frankie and Johnny has been uploaded on Youtube by the Berlin School itself. As it has not caught much attention 81 viewers on the moment of writing, it is time to give it some. 19th of March, NEW STUDIO GHIBLI CM: Yet another small project was announced today. This time Studio Ghibli brings a calligraphy styled CM, directed by Miyazaki Goro and with animation by Kondou Katsuya, to celibrate the 110th anniversary of Nisshin.

Nationwide broadcasting will start tomorrow and impressions can be found here. 24th of January, NEW SHORT FILM BY MIYAZAKI IN THE MAKING: This weeks episode of Suzuki Toshios radio show Ghibli Asemamire just aired some hours ago and brought noteworthy news. The main guest was Google Japan president Tsujino Koichiro and during their talk, Studio Ghibli producer Suzuki told that the famed Japanese animation studio is making a new short film; 10 minutes in length and made by Miyazaki Hayao. As many of the studios animators are working on the new feature Karigurashi no Arrietty, Miyazaki himself is even working on animating it as well. Though the short will have no dialogue, Suzuki mentioned it is very interesting, but cant tell about anymore details yet. These days Suzuki and Miyazaki, after a long time, have gotten interested in the internet and are considering how to use it for Studio Ghiblis future. They are even thinking about releasing the short on the internet like Youtube. To help them, Japans biggest advertising agency Dentsu is giving them advice, for example attaching a CM to the movie, but there are some points at issue though. Will it be abble to earn enough money? Even just a 10 minute short costs so much and soon after its release a lot of copies that cut the CM will be uploaded. Google president Tsujino adviced Suzuki that to act without worrying about the results is the Google way. Suzuki didnt tell how and when the release of Miyazakis new short is planned. During this internet era they will know that their current business model theatrical releasing/DVD sales/TV broadcasts cant last forever, though even at this moment they have a strong love for theater screens.
