Copy/paste from Vimeo says the following:
Vimeo wrote:A strange man builds a world using holographic tools for the woman he loves.
This award winning short was created by filmmaker Bruce Branit, widely known as the co-creator of '405'. World Builder was shot in a single day followed by about 2 years of post production. Branit is the owner of Branit VFX based in Kansas City.
From what I've gathered on the web the movie asked one day for the shooting and two years for the SFX.
Bruce Branit is indeed a SFX specialist who has worked one many movies and TV series like Serenity, King Kong or Pushing Daisies. He has also made himself a name in shorts' world with the former 405.
I find it awesome !
