    "Dreadspace" by Augustus Meleo
    A grandfather who lives across the country from his family tries to connect with his grandson inside virtual reality.
    A grandfather living across the country from his family begrudgingly agrees to use virtual reality in an attempt to connect with his neglected grandson. To the grandfather's surprise, these two family members from entirely different generations must connect inside of a violent video game. And together - while fighting for their survival in the game - they each have to help the other overcome a loneliness in their real lives.

    Both my grandfathers were dead before I was born. I never had anyone who said that to me. One would hope to see a resolution on the other problem in this video. Maybe the parents could stick their own virtual reality things on their heads.

    i think what whould have nailed it for me if it worked out that the kid like all kids was was full energy, impulsive, with over developed hand and eye skills to adapt to the game,, while the grand father thou new and lost to the new exp offered past experience,patience, compassion, wisdom and together there working to the common goal to survive!

    Greaat video but - Even if he's 70 he'd have been only 27 when Atari 2600 came out. It's very unlikely gramps would have been completely unfamiliar with the notion of "levels" and "dying" in a video game.

  • PuppyLuvU2

    Moral of the story pay more attention to your kids and filter what they are allowed to play better because little kids shouldn't be playing violent video games like that especially in vr. In fact they say no one under 12 should play VR and most VR gives warnings to not let little kids use them. So I would hope these kids were teenagers and not like 8 or 9 and being exposed to something that could be unhealthy for them then those parents really suck for such neglagence. :P

    Bringing your sensitive-to-violence-grandpa into a shooter was probably not a great idea. But think about the kid and the Grandpa spending time together in a different experience. VR doesn't replace real life encounters, but it might let us connect with each other when meeting face to face might not be an option.

    Oh my goodness. This was SOOO good. What a fabulous script. It had every element. Would be hard to categorize. Comedy... Action Adventure... Sci-Fi... Drama... Which one? All of them! So original. The last shot of the two main characters at the end was touching, funny unexpected. Keep your eyes on this director. This guy's not trying to copy George Lucas and is, therefore, Brilliant.
    Discovered DUST just 2 days ago, I'm already tired of the de rigeur opening wide shot of a decimated planet with little space ships flying around it. Lots of lens flares, orchestral music: dystopian apocalyptic future. Super soldier hero, explosions, lasers, destructive behemoth monster, etc. blablabla.
    This was different. Better.

    I liked this concept. Something you can relate to is always, as this was, uplifting. Even if it doesn't always work out for everyone, you can learn to live with it, learn from it and move on ensuring you don't pass it on.
