This one has been doing the rounds, and apparently was the hottest thing on the web in Japan in April. It’s just a little student film called “Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieux” (“Girls and Guys from the Summits and the Skies”). It’s kind of like a trailer for a movie, but is almost a little film in of itself. The creator is Gwenn Germain, a student at the French art school Créapole. Clearly it’s a homage to Hayao Miyazaki, but with a strong Heavy-Matal Moebius influence, and a nod to the incredible Syd Mead.
Unique originality, or blantant rip-off? You decide!
