Short Film of the Day: Avatar Days

Why Watch? Because sometimes the real world needs a little fantasy, and a documentary is the only thing that can bring the two together.

This short doc is incredible. It’s concept is one of sheer cleverness and execution that’s both thoughtful and playful at the same time.

It follows a handful of World of Warcraft players as they go about their banal, daily work (walking through cubicles, driving forklifts), but instead of people grinding out a 9-to-5, it’s their WoW characters. Through visual FX, the warlocks and warriors are brought into the bus stops and buildings with some insightful, personal interviews acting as voice over.

What Will It Cost? Just 4 minutes of your time.
