When Marnie Was There is Oscar nominated for Best Animated Feature


I am truly honoured to have written the adaptation on this exquisite film from Studio Ghibli by director Hiromasa Yonebayashi. The English language dub arguably packs even more emotional weight, with the voice talent of Hailee Steinfeld, Madmen’s Kiernan Shipka, Kathy Bates, John C. Reilly, Vanessa Williams, Catherine O’Hara, Ellen Burstyn, Raini Rodriguez, and Geena Davis. I worked hard to stay as faithful to the original Japanese, yet allowing colour and character to shine.
