I won't usually spend more than 2 minutes to watch something online, but this one was worth it! :mrgreen:

I used to do an activity like this when I taught 3rd grade. My students would make various carnival games out of boxes etc and the Kindergarten kids would come to our Carnival.

I hope we get the follow up story 10 years from now that his Scholarship got put to good use. That's really quite an uplifting story all around. The numbers keep climbing for the amount collected towards that scholarship....I think I read it was up to $90K!!!

I hope the filmmaker guy benefits from this in some way. He made a big difference in a young person's life.

Yay! I'm so happy this brought some joy to y'all as well! I love the creativity, passion, and attention to detail that went into the arcade - so cool that the filmmaker embraced this and helped bring the dream to life! :clapping:

Thanks Joker for re-posting the video after the link went in-active - not sure what was up with that.

Gregoir, that project sounds awesome - I bet all the kids had a blast with it!

Always choose happy and imagination! :mrgreen:

Yes, but wouldn't it be nice if his excellent work caught the eye of some Hollywood Movie Industy executive, which led to some sort of big break for him?
