A heartwarming story about a 9-year old Caine arrived from Los Angeles, boy who has build a cardboard arcade in his father’s second hand car parts store. While he was looking for a doorknob, filmmaker Nirvana Mullick discovered Caine and was delighted with ingenuity and imagination of this boy. He made a short film about it and published it on the Internet. He couldn’t have imagine how much this would change life for both of them.
In only few days the film was seen by more than 2 million people, local media reported the story in prime time and Caine’s story circled the earth in incredibly short time. In addition, in just one night , more than one hundred thousand dollars was donated in Caine’s scholarship fund. People from all over the world came to visit the arcade made by this little genius which confirms journalist speculations that this is a future billionaire.
The most fascinating thing is how many people and children this story inspired, thinks Nirvana Mullick. The wave of creativity spread across the Internet so we got cardboard flipper, robots, soccer and whole of a lot other games that were made by kids alone or with help of their parents. He became aware of how many unrecognized and anonymous kids like Caine are there in the world and has established the Imagination foundation few months after the first movie was released on the Internet. The goal of the foundation is to find, fund and foster children as Caine, and to promote the business spirit and creativity in children through play. Educators agree that knowledge of the facts is not enough, the children should be encouraged to devise and create. Robert Manning, NASA’s chief engineer on the Mars lander project confirms that children’s dreams can come true. He use to build cardboard spaceships when he was a child, and today he designs real ones. Children’s creativity knows no boundaries and one of the goals of the foundation is to give them the opportunity to build what ever they have imagined, but also to imagine a world they want to build.
