This short and sweet video by Netherlands’ snoozer might induce fond recollections of oneself as a bright and imaginative kid!
They say children have the wildest and most vivid imaginations, and this fact is the focus of this less-than-a-minute-long short flick by Jorn van der Putte (*snoozer*) of the Netherlands. It’s a very simple film that stars a little boy, with whimsical instrumental music playing in the background and the words “So today I invent a spaceship and tomorrow I will fly and discover something new” appearing one after the other throughout. Snoozer’s Lomokino debut has that cool, vintage vibe that films shot with these camera are known for, making “All kids are inventors” look like an artsy, old home movie!

Who knows, you just might get featured in an upcoming installment!
