The streets are paved with paper. This delicate animation follows the charming rise and fold of a fragile metropolis.
Captured by an unseen helicopter, the narrative unfolds through winding roads, erupting forests and emerging mountains.
Paper City grows in one fluid take, with skyscrapers rising from the page – only to crumble, wrinkle and gently crease back into the ground.
A strange man builds a world using holographic tools for the woman he loves.
This award-winning short was created by filmmaker Bruce Branit (branit.com), widely known as the co-creator of '405'. World Builder was shot in a single day followed by about 2 years of post-production.
