Best Miyazaki Tribute Ever?

c66fce53fd54d1eda5aa50597f0229a6I’m not saying this is the best Miyazaki tribute I’ve ever seen…

…but I’m not saying it’s not.

Girls and Guys from Summits and Skies

Project: A trailer for a 2D animated sci-fi/adventure feature
Pitch: A young boy who lives in a village perched on a huge tree falls in the depths of the forest where he meets two Aboriginal strange that will help him return home
Main Inspirations: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean Giraud, Syd Mead
Using: Hana-bi by Joe Hisaishi

The InterWebs reports that its creator, one Gwenn Germain, made this faux-trailer “as his final project at Creapole, the Paris creative design university. …alongside Miyazaki, Germain also cites as influences the French cartoonist Jean Girault (also known as Mœbius), and Blade Runner designer Syd Mead. It’s the Studio Ghibli influences that comes through strongest, though, helped along by a Joe Hisaishi soundtrack (the theme from 1997’s Hana–bi). Visually it draws particularly heavily from Princess Mononoke and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.”

I definitely see a bit of No-Face in there, as well.
