A Six Year Old's Imagination Becomes Adorable Viral Short Film

We all get a little scared sometimes. Scared of graduating school without a plan; scared of monsters. One six year old has a remedy: think of something else until the "nervous has gone out of you." Think of juice, pizza, and a piano shaped chocolate chip cookie. In other words, he says, "when the scared feeling comes into you, the scared is scared of things you like." This is all advice told to filmmaker Bianca Giaever, who asked one very clever child to tell her a story…about anything…so that she could turn it into a movie.

The story she heard was as brilliant as the film she created to go along with the narrative. Giaever explains on her Vimeo, "I asked a six year old what my movie should be about, and this is what he told me." Watching the finished product leaves you wondering what other genius we'd learn of if children's voices were heard a little bit more often. And the good news is that given the internet success her short has already had, Giaever probably doesn't need to be scared about graduating school anymore.
