One of my favorite pastimes is watching Miyazaki back to back. From Princess Mononoke to Spirited Away to Nausicaa to Porco Rosso to . . . all of them . . . each one of his movies is amazing in one way or more. Hayao Miyazaki, to be said simply, is breathtaking, inspiring, uplifting. Sadly, we don’t get to see a whole lot of his creations nowadays, so being a big fan of animation, I always look for new artists who might have similar artistic inclinations as the master himself.
Imagine my surprise when during my regular Vimeo strolls, I stumbled upon this gorgeous short film and was whisked away, with Miyazaki-like magic and skill, into this amazing world. Found later that Miyazaki is an inspiration with the creator as well. Joe Hisaishi’s music, sweet and haunting, is perfectly suited to the short.
If you are a Miyazaki fan, or love animations, or simply enjoy a beautiful movie, go on and lose yourself in this dream world by Gwenn GERMAIN. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a full length feature from this talented animator.
Story, as pitched on Vimeo: A young boy who lives in a village on a giant tree, fall in the depth of the forest where he meets two strange natives who will help him to go back home.
