Watch: Fantastic Short 'Caine's Arcade' About a 9-Year-Old's Arcade

April 10, 2012

Caine's Arcade

Wow. If you haven't seen this yet, you definitely need to. Not only is it a funny, heartwarming, inspirational story, but it's a great short film, boasting fantastic storytelling. There's a superb short going around called Caine's Arcade, directed by Nirvan Mullick, about this amazing 9-year-old kid named Caine who made his own home-made cardboard arcade. I know, it doesn't sound great, but just watch it, you'll understand the heart and the passion that this kid put into this (yea) and it's awesome. I love great short films that tell a great story, and this is a must watch. Nirvan, who is in this, deserves some credit, too. "This kid's a genius!"

Many sites have been posting this recently, including Movies.com and Twitch. The short was posted online officially on Nirvan's Vimeo. I love that Caine's wearing a little blue "staff" shirt with "Caine's Arcade" on the back, just like out of the original Tron. Amazing. I love this short, and hopefully all of you do, too! For more info on Caine's Arcade itself (including if you want to go see it), you can check out their Facebook or Twitter. For details on Caine's Scholarship Fund, visit cainesarcade.com. And for more from Nirvan Mullick, you can find him on Twitter. If you enjoyed this film, tell everyone else to spread the joy and come watch it as well.

Awesome and fantastic to see a kid just being a kid, using his imagination and simply playing and not having to spend money to do it !! Hes restored my faith!
