Free Backgrounds For Your Virtual Meetings – The creators of Spirited Away and some many other wonderful productions will help you video-conferences look better.
If you’re looking for some inspiring backdrops for your video-conference calls, Studio Ghibli has just released a variety of beautiful backgrounds for free. They’re all pieces of outstanding artwork from their great productions Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind to Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo, Arrietty, and The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.
On a post on their website, Studio Ghibli recommends their backgrounds to be used in virtual classes, telecommuting etc, but they emphasize they’re not meant for commercial purposes of any sort. So, don’t go placing your business logo on them. Just enjoy these nice pieces of art as you go through business days during your quarantine time.
Studio Ghibli is sometimes referred to as “the Japanese Disney”. Maybe because both Disney and Ghibli have been successful at creating animations that captivated entire generations in their dreamy storytelling and beautiful artwork.
You can download the free backgrounds here. Although the site is in Japanese, you shouldn’t find any difficulties to get them. It’s pretty straightforward: click on an image and wait until it opens. Then right-click to save. Check your video-conferencing application’s instructions to set it up as your background.
