As a college student, I know little or nothing about companies let alone office environment. However, as I imagine, it might not be so different from school; there are people who are strict about rules and those who are not. In this short film, Terry Tate (aka Office Linebacker) is a symbol of rules. He is relentless to anyone who corrupts office moral.
I personally like the contrasts depicted in the film. The characteristics of Terry Tate is very simple but well considered. The first impression of him is a masculine, tough, and probably simple-minded guy. However, as the cases show up, it turns out that he also have many counter aspects to the impression, such as kindness, weakness, and working skills. One comic book writer told me that this is a classical technique to develop a personality of a character. In other words, to give two opposite aspects to the character can make him/her appear to be like a human. Contrasts are also used in the story line, such as that of the CEO and Terry Tate, and justice and damage caused by protecting justice.
Overall, I like the short film. It was so short that I could watch it as if I read a comic book, and I would love to watch the succeeding series of Terry.
