Josh’s Story

How did you see the future as a child? Were there any cities on the Moon, flying cars and lasers? Or maybe machine uprisings or dark cyberpunk? We decided to remember how we saw the distant future, when we had imagined it before going to bed and asked ourselves in what world we could wake up.
The animation will become a time machine for us this time, and will take us to a futuristic city created by the imagination of a little boy named Josh. In “his” future, humanity lives in underground cities protected by domes. People live in a world of developed culture and technology, disease and hunger have been defeated. How can they move through such huge cities, going deep down? Stairs? Of course not, we are in the distant future, they have a network of overhead trains that connect not only different levels, but entire cities, among themselves.
We have put a lot of effort into recreating at least a small part of the upcoming prospects, which may be waiting for us tomorrow. And we need to look forward as boldly and positively as Josh does, because there is nothing more exciting and more unpredictable than the future, blinked and missed something.
