Through this thesis, I intended to analyze Hollywood animation through that achieved in box office by directing viewpoint. of Chris Sanders and Dean Deblois not only shows standard narrative structure of adventure, comedy, fantasy, but also express message of story and thorough visual. Analysis of directing classify contents and form. In contents, constitution of narrative and set up of character, irony of plot, characterization and popularity are embossed. In form, lighting and special effect, design and layout, 3D technology and stereoscopic camera technique based on the capital strength are outstanding. The high evaluation for film is possessed of box offic, remained within value and popularity, and delivered metaphysical theme without repulsion. The director's direction make success even if the pre-production manage by huge system approach.
