Storyline

A soldier awakens on a gray, deserted plane. He rises, stretches - is that a drop of blood we see on the ground? He removes his helmet. A large television set sweeps into view. He walks to it, pushes a video tape into the slot, and the tape begins to play. "Welcome to Heaven, you are dead." The soldier hastens away; another television set rolls in front of him. The soldier draws his gun. Can he put an end to death? Or do other states await him? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great animation in search of a story
21 February 2002 | by (az) – See all my reviews

There were few or no technical flaws in this short, which in 3 minutes follows a lone soldier in eternity (a completely white horizon with TVs and VCRs that tell him where he is). He tries multiple rounds of suicide, but he wakes up at every instance, and he's in a different part of the same place (according to the TV).

Who is this guy? How did he get there? I think if this film were more developed it has potential of being something very groundbreaking. However, you can't fault the sound, which is extremely tight.
