Check this music-video-like anime short out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXc_HOZgSgY

Some are claiming that it's Shinkai-ish.  I can see it in the color choices and saturation, and a couple scenes come very, very close.  That said, the fine detail work isn't there, light and shadow work isn't as pronounced, and those clouds look too brush-painted compared to Shinkai, but these aren't necessarily bad things.  That said, there's much more movement, as choppy as it is, than Shinkai's work.  And it definitely hits on that feeling of nostalgic of a time I've never experienced and a place I've never been to that Shinkai nails so well.

I like it.  Anybody have any information on this?

There were some design choices and tropes that this person used that was definitely inspired by Shinkai, but I also noticed some Miyazaki inspiration as well, along with the animator's own style their trying to create, using their favorite director's styles as a crutch. There was one part which totally screamed "Hideaki Anno" at me.

Could almost be a trailer (wish it were).

Did her t-shirt say "Pink Floyd"?
