Imagine a world

World Builder from BranitVFX on Vimeo.

Special effects producer Bruce Branit created this short film, which is now getting its own legs. “WorldBuilder” is a sweet little story that revolves around the notion of what we might be able to create in a virtual world.

Imagine yourself the city planner, architect, decorator and gardener for your own virtual neighborhood. What would you build?

    AH! SUN-FLOWER

    Ah, Sun-flower! weary of time,

    Who countest the steps of the Sun,

    Seeking after that sweet golden clime

    Where the traveller’s journey is done:

    Where the Youth pined away with desire,

    And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow

    Arise from their graves, and aspire

    Where my Sun-flower wishes to go.

    (1794)
