Worth Watching - Doesn't capture the emotions too well though
Basically this is a seven minute short with the credits on both sides totalling to nine. The story is centered around the death of a member in a family; and focuses on how life is disturbed in its "normal" trajectory. It starts of light-hearted with a few mild jokes and imagery. This is followed by the inevitable news of the accidental death of their brother. The family struggles to deal with this, and has a conversation on how family needs to maintain their status even though they are in mourning. It raises the question as to whether the brother was a solid one or an unloved authority, as Abby and Elliot cannot seem to get over their stage fright to hon his memory.
There is a lack of focus on the disconnect between siblings, but suggests nothingness - there is a question for the viewer: Where do we go from here? In my opinion: this is a take on nothing, they move on, stop living from memory and try to overcome the tragedy. 5-6/10 - solid juxtaposition between the start and finish.
