Animation student Gwenn Germain recently released a short film titled Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieux (Girls and Guys from Summits and Skies), an impressive Studio Ghibli, Miyazaki-inspired tribute about a boy who lives in a village on top of a giant tree. The boy falls off the tree into a forest where he is rescued by two strangers who assist him in getting back to his village. The short film essentially functions as a movie trailer without an actual movie but the trailer is of such a high quality that it's hard not to want to go see the movie regardless of whether or not it exists. Beckett Mufson from The Creator's Project writes:


Germain has a mind for the fantastical creatures and settings you'd traditionally see in one of Miyazaki's stories, from a massive city inside a geodesic dome, to airborne manta rays and lively mushroom sprites. Beyond the Studio Ghibli founder, Germainn also cites Blade Runner, Aliens, TRON designer Syd Mead, and comic illustrator Mœbius as important influences on the short.
