This is beautiful.. Gonna check the film out for sure.
As an editor I really love this, I'm working on a project much like this. I think it's interesting how cinema evolved and is evolving. I love how you link the evolution of cinema to a kid growing up because it's true, and for all we know this is just the ultimate beginning of cinema as a whole.
There were a couple of scenes, Iconic scenes I really missed but you can't put everything that has some kind of greater meaning into a relatively short movie so that's understandable. Nonetheless loved watching this cut. My editor-hearth is filled with joy and love for cinema, creativity and creating things in it's own.
I was thinking of this concept a while back, great somebody did it.
Sounds really interesting. I'd like to see what they made of it.
