"I died and went to... a day job?" Welcome to Purgatory's grueling Life Traffic Control, the after-life department responsible for maintaining the balance of life and death on Earth. Births are on the rise and life traffic controllers must keep a keen eye on all opportunities to pluck a soul from its mortal coil. Failure to take advantage of a fatality opportunity requires a Random Natural Occurrence, or RNO, to preserve the status quo. After one RNO too many, failure prone controller Wesley is threatened with damnation by his domineering boss and decides to take matters into his own hands proving that living isn't easy and dying isn't hard, but managing both can be murder!

The Duke City Shootout is a filmmaking competition where six winning screenwriters are given seven days - four to shoot (under union rules) and three to edit - to bring their pages to the screen. Facing multiple stunts and special effects, we decided on the third day of shooting to include a "homage" to the other five films we were competing against. The screenplay was quickly adapted to include the maladies we understood to be in each of the other films, for example a girl dressed up like Princess Leia getting hit by a car for one film and five bounty hunters found dead in a bar in another film. Each series of lines were received with laughter and praise at the initial competitive screening. See more »
