Working with Joe Hisaishi on “Children of the Sea”

Director Ayumu Watanabe discusses working with composer Joe Hisaishi, and his stylistic approach to Children of the Sea

In his first time working on a feature-length animation since Studio Ghibli’s The Wind Rises and The Tale of The Princess Kaguya, renowned composer Joe Hisaishi joined the Children of the Sea creative team. The latest feature from Japan’s cutting-edge animation house STUDIO4°C (Tekkonkinkreet, MFKZ, Mind Game), Children of the Sea is a stunningly beautiful adaptation of Daisuke Igarashi’s prize-winning manga. 

Hear from Children of the Sea director Ayumu Watanabe on how he and Hisaishi came to agree on a musical atmosphere for the film, and why he thinks Hisaishi was uniquely suited to compose for Children of the Sea.
