The Postcard: A Futuristic Travel Video

In Art, Movies & TV, Travel by ashbydodd

The Postcard tells the story of one woman’s trip in the not-so-distant future.

The Postcard is a wonderful short film that chronicles a young woman’s vacation with her new love Brad. But this isn’t the kind of postcard we’re used to today, it’s a postcard from the future.

The story isn’t new: a young woman travels abroad, meets the love of her life and has a life-changing adventure. We’ve read that book, seen that movie, and maybe had that experience ourselves. So what makes this animated short from Device worthwhile? This time, that adventure takes place in the year 2037.

Greetings from 2037:

2037. What a great year. It was the year when I travelled to Southeast Asia and I experienced things I will never forget. Luckily, postcards will be always there to remind us that the past, sometimes, is not so different from the future. Or is it?

Device is an animation studio based in Barcelona, Spain. They are “a team of directors, illustrators, animators, designers and music composers, known for it’s stylistic diversity and technical ability.”
