So very little in my life have I cared about the story from the moment I saw the animation. The moment I saw the style you were going for I knew this was outstanding. Rarely do I ignore a description when a video is over that I'd re-watch the video again before seeing my speculations rung true. Your inspirations are obvious and it shows very well.
If anything can explain how good this would be, it would be to wonder if a movie would come out in the future, before learning of the title, which I have done.
As much of a review I can give, no improvements needed. Beyond ideal success in animation, story, style, world, and mystery. 11/10 beyond flawless perspective.
