- I asked a six year old what my movie should be about, and this is what he told me.
Bianca Giaever's graduation film project, and eight-minute short in which six-year-old Asa Baker-Rouse, asked to tell a story, makes one up on the spot with that used as narration while it's acted out.The story consists of a bear and a mouse who go swimming at a public pool only to find, at the end of the day, that it was the pool's last day open before closing for winter. So they think up other things to do. This leads Giaever and Baker-Rouse to talk about things ending, other things beginning and what to do when you're scared.
Went viral in February 2013. Watch it here.
