‘An Ode to Science Fiction’ is a loving tribute video by University of Montana student Brett Kuxhausen. This silent three minute stop-motion video explains, through beautiful imagery, how classic science fiction literature boosted Kuxhausen’s creativity and helped influence his career and area of study.

Famous novels including Brave New World, 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy feature in the short video, as paper submarines, video cameras and androids frolic around Kuxhausen and the stack of books on which he sits. An Ode to Science Fiction is a very loving acknowledgement of and tribute to all the stories and rich fantasy worlsd that shaped our perspectives and personalities.

For Kauxhausen, science fiction novels were his biggest influence, but for other people it could be fantasy, or mysteries, or horror books. It is undeniable that reading is a vital part of childhood development.
