Short of the week – World of Tomorrow

If you’re a fan of short film, or if you’ve been following the Oscar nominations, then chances are you’ve heard of Don Hertzfeldt’s fantastic, Oscar nominated, short film, World of Tomorrow.

Following a young girl, and a future clone of herself through memories, the simple animation, over beautiful background imagery, is packed full of big ideas, warmth, and humour in just 16 minutes.

Unfortunately World of Tomorrow is not free to view on Vimeo (you can rent it for €3,99), but it is currently available on US Netflix. I strongly urge you to seek out this mini masterpiece, and travel back through some of Hertzfeldt’s previous work.

Watch the trailer below –
