Synopsis

Buddy is a mouse living in a small concession stand in a theme park in 1962. Today is his lucky day as you help him get his cheese out of a trap. He brings us into his world where every tiny thing now seems huge! In this fantastic world where a chocolate bar is a size of basketball hoop, this lonely mouse is hiding his sorrows. Since Buddy is a mouse who can’t talk, we communicate only with body gestures, such as nodding and eye contact. We first learn each other’s names and start exploring our surroundings. Suddenly, we are interrupted by a loud earthquake. It’s the same little girl who took Buddy’s friends away!

Director’s Statement

Buddy VR is about one becoming a friend of a lonely mouse. I wanted to make a friend who lives in a movie. We soon discover friendship through a mirror of our existence - Buddy. In the end, when you look back at fond moments by doing small meaningless things together, they become precious memories that help build our existence in virtual reality.
