I don't think so.

What is nice about this short is the visual appearance of the actors playing Lourdes and Bernard. It is only when the characters start speaking does one switch off due to the poor dialog and not to mention done to death plot/sub-plot and characters. In particular, the character portrayed Nick Moran - a good actor wasted on a bad role. It's only in the third act that you realize this poor short is a build up to the director's exhibition of visual effects and there is one particularly good visual effect that soon loses it's efficacy or wow factor given the rest of the film. i suppose short filmmakers have on the whole decided to create shorts that have a possible 'wow! that was cool.' moment hence the lack of focus on emotionally engaging the audience.
