Michiyo Yasuda's terrific work with the studio spans from her earliest days with work on 'Castle in the Sky' (1986) to Hiyo Miyazaki's final film, 'The Wind Rises' (a few years ago).

“What I like best is when I am building up the colors in my head, thinking of how to get the tone worked out,” Yasuda said during her interview with the L.A. Times. “Color has a meaning, and it makes the film more easily understood. Colors and pictures can enhance what the situation is on screen.” RIP Michiyo Yasuda, you will be missed!
