Did You Know?


The only "real doctor" associated with the animated short is the musician and sound engineer Dr. Milton Mermikides - who was brought to the team not only for his musical talents, but because he was also a leukemia survivor. Due to the tight movie release schedule, both he and his wife Bridget's surnames were misspelled in the film credits as 'Mermikedes', much to their chagrin. See more »

I Feel Enlightened!
25 January 2013 | by (the Entertainment Capital of India) – See all my reviews

Such an amazing ten minutes of my life that I watched this on YT. Pure magnificence and I am overwhelmed with Minchin's way of using slapstick to show us what reality is.

A competition between religion and science - never have I seen a wonderful depiction where there are proofs and not just faiths. Storm talks about how we have all become dependent to the technology and DO NOT star gaze. Much like most of us don;t know why Pluto isn't a planet anymore, the need to Google everything has become a trend which is a negativity.

The narration is musical with drums playing, the characters already having enough depth and a creative take on the new era. Wonderful!

Storm inspires us to think and like Hemingway said, if we think - we are atheists. A great short film - must watch even if you are a non-atheist.
