Mission: New Year

OK, this is perhaps a little late but I am sure you will find this amusing!  A lone but nonetheless somewhat arrogant astronaut (a kind of Jock Sheldon Cooper), played by Richard Hollman, is the only person above the Earth on New Year’s Eve.  Mission Control has done what they can to help him bring in the New Year but he remains alone with his ironic asides about the Mayan Apocalypse.  The New Year comes in and… well, you will have to watch to find out what happens.

The immense fun that writer, director and editor Jonah Oskow and his crew had making this very short (science fiction) short is evident in each and every frame.  I’m going to do a River Song and not provide you with any spoilers here, as at only just over two minutes in length you don’t need any.  Needless to say if you don’t laugh (or at least wryly smile), I’ll eat my hat.
