Welcome to World of Tomorrow

Posted April 2nd, 2015 at 2:25 AM by Mr Cat Dog


Apologies for those expecting a [I]Futurama[/I] reference, but I can assure you that I have not missed a 'the' in the title of this blog post.

I assume that maybe three people will check this out (those three being shenanigans, maccrash and Rest), but I thought I'd do my part to publicise the brilliant new short animated film [I]World of Tomorrow[/I] by Don Hertzfeldt. The brief synopsis is below, although it's probably best to go into this one completely cold, hence the spoiler tag:

[SPOILER]A little girl is taken on a mind-bending tour of her distant future.[/SPOILER]
Don't know who Don Hertzfeldt is? You may know him from his Oscar-nominated, cult-short film [I]Rejected[/I], which is available on YouTube:


I believe that, if you live in a particularly urbanised/metropolitan area of the US, [I]World of Tomorrow[/I] may be receiving a limited theatrical screening but, for most people, the way they can view it is by renting it from Vimeo [URL="https://vimeo.com/ondemand/worldoftomorrow/123514170"]here[/URL].

I encourage as many people as possible to check it out; it's not as if your anus is bleeding or if you're the Queen of France!* It's only 16 minutes of your life (unless you watch it five times in a row like I did), but make sure you have lunch today and that you get your wiggle wiggle wiggle on.**

[SIZE="1"]*Those references will make sense if you've seen [i]Rejected[/i].
**These references will make sense once you've seen [i]World of Tomorrow[/i]![/SIZE]

    I absolutely love Don Hertzfeldt and have been following his work for a long time now. Include me in the "already love it" category!
