The short, titled “Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieux” (“Girls and Guys from Summits and Skies”), was a project created a year ago by French art school student Gwenn Germain. Inspired by prominent figures like Hayao Miyazaki, Jean Giraud, and Syd Mead, Germain labored for five months on his film to climb a few rungs closer to his favorite artists, and has received a stamp of approval from Ghibli fans everywhere.

Set in a breathtaking world of flying blimps, European architecture, and strange slime-like creatures, the film pays tribute to movies like Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. There's even an appearance by a character with a strong resemblance to Hayao Miyazaki himself. Germain used the song "Hana-bi" by longtime Miyazaki collaborator Joe Hisaishi, even staying true musically to the source of his inspiration. It's a shame Germain hasn't released a feature film of this short, but with the amount of praise it has garnered since it was first shared on the internet, seeing a full-length movie might not be an impossible dream.
