Great films influence great people: Jasper Boogaard

Films can have great impact on our lives and ideals. We asked some of our favorite people to tell us something about a film that influenced their live. This time we spoke with musician Jasper Boogaard, who will perform on July 25th during the festival with his band Goodnight Moonlight.



Jasper is a great fan of anime especially films from Hayao Miyazaki and the Studio Ghibli. ‘The films are beautiful stories, overloaded with fantasy. The characters express their emotions in a subtle way, but yet they tell you more than a real human character in a feature film.’

‘Also for my music I’m inspired by anime films. For my single Mountain Boy I used a sample from The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. When I talked with a Japanese label owner, he told me recognized the sample.’

During Roffa Mon Amour Jasper will watch Magical Girl

‘The last wish of the protagonist is absurd, but also endearing. It makes me curious.’
