Web Animation Watch: Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieuex, Captain Apple and more
How does a French animator's student film end up going viral in Japan? When you see it, it might quickly become clear- Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieuex is something rather special. The short is above all a homage to the work of Hayao Miyazaki. In just two and a half minutes, the beautiful animation packs in references to Nausicaa, Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle and more. It captures the feel of a Ghibli production, without slavishly copying the art style. Hell, it even features an appearance for a character who is a dead ringer for the director himself. Gwenn Germain is clearly a talent to watch.

Captain Apple is a superhero... sort of, I guess? Whatever he is, this short from RageNineteen is SUPER funny. Do you see what we did there?

In the next few years we're due not just one, but two new Ghostbusters films. But how would the classic Ghostbusters cope with 21st century ghosts? Mashed and Humphrey Erm might have the answer!
