    Very well done and left me wanting to see how it plays out. My one beef is that he should have headed straight for the wreckage to see if she might have lived rather than just forgetting her immediately.

    If anyone complains about bad acting, F off.
    I absolutely LOVE stuff like this. Totally gives me hope about the future and makes me look forward to just about anything technology-wise.
    I just wanted more at the end. More more more .... Rachael ... is she still alive after what we just saw? I need to know and will more than likely play this through in my mind over and over. And that's a very good thing :-)

    I agree, this was just to short but so good. I would hope that the maker of this will continue to make a movie from this short. Sounds and looks dramatic. No telling what is out there in our Universe. We need to know what happened to his girlfriend, too. Why is the ship incased? Why did the Alien destroy the ship that came back? Where did his friends go too? So many unfinished questions. He's got us dreaming you know....I realize this post is about four years old but it's still good stuff.

    My theory.
    1:30 it’s about time travel not teleporting in Space
    Rachel jumped into the future where time travel is strictly forbidden due to it’s dangerous consequences. Time police impounds her vehicle. They find out that this is the first time jumping vehicle ever build and make a small museum. Rachel is not allowed to go back into the past. But time police brings her friends into the future too. They give the guy a device he can use to visit the small museum about his achievement before reuniting with his friends. The gun was to tell him: don’t make something dumb. He misunderstands completely and steals his time machine only to be gunned down in the past.
    One thing is weird: 3:46 he is in the same desert in the end but earth suddenly has two moons. One of them is insanely large/close. Maybe he was inside of a simulation all along :P

    Turan Hasanli Month ago

    The Alien(or man from future) couldn't let people from past(present) use technology of time travel, because humans are not ready for that yet. So he destroyed time machine and killed witnesses, but cannot kill time travel machine's engineer, because non of these would ever happen, and humanity in future wouldn't have time travel possibility. I see it this way.

    It is removed beautifully. But what the author wanted to tell this short film? Where sense of the events and logical succession of events? They are absent just. The author did not manage to finish the movie at least something intelligent and distinct. Therefore the nonsense alas turned out.

    Great! Absolutely.It's just remind me "BUCKAROO BANZAÏ"'s Adventures,a good movie of the 80's.the plot of the story is the same except for a few details except that the film is much more crazy and gives access to another dimension where things, the technology is very different from ours but it does not detract from the quality of this short film, it is very good but a little short, it is true.On fact with the means that we have and it is already remarkable for a start, really amazing.High class.Bravo!

    How come so many sci-fi films think it is ok if they dont explain you what is going on?
    So many films seem to rely on the element of things turned around, turned unexpectedly, etc. But... If it was about suspence, it will not be called sci-fi, but detective or mystery films.
    I am all for a clever, interesting scenario. This kind of sci-fi films very rarely are my taste. I mean, it is rare that a film rises above the herd.
    Well...., they are saying it so clearly, aren't they? They think that the future is dangerous. They could have said interesting, fresh, full of love and youth, knowledge, new knowledge of ancient history.... They seem to confuse sci-fi with the future, and the future with adventure films.
    As always, literature is a product of its society and times. I'm obviously not a New-Yorker.

    The guy from the other dimension (future) is the same guy who created the jump-velocity-vehicle. Following on from the "short" him and Rachel decide to terminate the new creation due to mankind not being ready. Rachel is obviously not in the proto-type vehicle when it's destroyed and more than likely in the "craft that comes through to destroy the prototype". The future technology that allows "jumping" is carefully controlled on the "other side" and so is sealed away (in box) until it can be put back onto its original track 'so to speak'. They live happily in the other more advanced dimension (future) and never go back. Just a thought, lot's of holes, I know, but it's where my thought processes were going when it ended. I love these shorts! Very thought provoking and it's interesting how people interpret the same imagery completely different! Very interesting! Have a great day! :-) X
