World Builder

World Builder from BranitVFX on Vimeo.

A lovely vision of the future and a spellbinding movie that took a day to shoot and two years in post-production. By Bruce Branit of Kansas.


  1. Absolutely beautiful, Katherine. Thank you so much for sharing. x

  2. This was one of those that I couldn't not share.

  3. I'm not ashamed to say that I cried at the end.

    I'd decided half way through that this was the present not the future and that those lucky enough to have imaginations could live this experience whenever the mood was right. I could not have anticipated the poignancy of the ending.

    I sometimes wonder how on earth you find all these fascinating things, Katherine. I inhabit such a mundane world by comparison.

  4. Aw, GB, sorry, I should have warned you it was a bit sad.
    Quick, go to my post for 11 April 2009 'A scene one day at a train station' to raise your spirits again.

  5. Go to the clip in YouTube (click on it in my post) so you can click off the annoying ad banner at the bottom...

  6. Hi,

    Your blog caught my eye because I read "The Mouse and His Child" to my daughter and we loved it. :)

    Great blog name!

    The video was poignant, worth watching...

  7. Jules - Welcome to TLVD! And thank you. Needless to say, I read it to all three of mine.
