The following is a moving “what if” film, created by Bruce Branit, who gained fame a while back for co-creating the viral “405 – Aircraft Lands on the Freeway” video. It’s the story of a man who enters a virtual world, and creates a town from scraps of memory, for the one he loves.
According to sources, “World Builder” was shot in a single day followed by about 2 years of post production. It’s also interesting to note that the builder in the film goes through the same actions as that of an avatar building objects inside current virtual worlds such as Second Life (perhaps Branit has researched on, or has been exposed to virtual worlds content creation methods?). It seems to convey the message that, one day, content creators might be building and creating items inside virtual worlds in
the same manner as seen in the film.
