Bianca Giaever, from Middlebury in Vermont, is a member of the social video sharing site Vimeo. She talked to a 6-year-old boy about a movie he may have in mind. The boy, Asa Baker-Rouse, dished more than just a concept. And Giaever translated it into a wonderful short film.

"I asked a six year old what my movie should be about, and this is what he told me," writes Giaever on Vimeo. The video was uploaded six days ago, but it started drawing praises only recently. Mashable called the story, "Oscar-worthy."

The video shows how 6-year-old Asa Baker-Rouse imagines his story right from the beginning, with the word "start" in box within a box.

One day, a "big, enormous" bear told a mouse they should go to a swimming pool," begins the story. Asa is quite detail-oriented, even pointing out the scenes where he'd use sound effects. What viewers get is a delightfully fascinating takeaway thought about life, letting go, pizza, and all things you like. The theme is pretty catchy, too.

Here are some of the comments on Giaever's video:

I love love love this! And I love that I know Asa's mom and Bianca knows my son. That's one of the many small world things I love about Vermont! - Julie Benay
