My film “Twice upon a Time”: New edit with only the Good 2030!

This is a special new edit of my recent film Twice Upon a Time see https://futuristgerd.com/sharing/... and https://youtu.be/BanqTNbTotU We received a lot of feedback about the 'lousy 2030' part being a bit too long and dystopian so we figured we'd also offer a new edit that features only the good 2030 aka #thegoodfuture :) I hope you enjoy this version; if so, please be sure to subscribe and share it widely!
