In June of 2021, the makers of theClouds Movie declared victory with their visualized computer-generated dream world. The movie was more than a hit and created a buzz around Hollywood. Although some said that the movie was too dreamy, others were happy that they got a taste of animated fantasy. Below you will find some plot points of the Clouds Movie.
Our main hero is called Dusty, and he works for the NSA. He is a technical assistant at the NSA, where his sole responsibility is to keep track of all the Chinese sleeper agents that are in the country. The other part of his job is to analyze the computer networks at the NSA. This is the job that got him hooked on the Clouds.
Clouds is a machine that operates off the knowledge that Dusty has collected from all the previous studies and simulations that he has made. It is said that when Dusty is left alone in his room he can go into the Clouds and start to do his calculations. This is actually what he does in the movie. He starts to make his own little designs and simulations of the clouds so that he can understand how computer networks work.
As the movie progresses you begin to realize that Dusty has more control over the clouds as he makes more simulations. At the end of the movie there is a surprise, and it is up to you if you let Dusty live or let him die. If you allow him to live, he begins to make more clouds and then uses them to cloud the network.
In the novel Clouds & Sheep, by Aaron Berg, the main character is a boy who lives on a planet called Sol. One day, while on Sol, he creates a fantasy world in his mind using the Clouds & Sheep engine that he has been studying. This forces him to go back to Earth and enter Sol’s physical reality. Now, he must deal with the other inhabitants of Sol and learn about their culture and their history. I enjoyed this book, because it gave me a good example of how a child would think of computer programs and how they are designed.
The movie may not be as exciting as the book, but it is a very good lesson. Learning is one of the best things in life, and movies like Cloud and Sheep will help children learn something about that. Whether it is just a childhood memory for them or a full blown advanced technology fantasy, the movie Cloud and the Bees is definitely worth watching. Even if it doesn’t teach you anything new, it is a very fun watch!
