This short film transcends entertainment. It enthralls the viewer with the imprisonment of an unnamed test subject in Aperture's testing facilities, with direct inspiration provided by Valve's first-person puzzler Portal.

Formality aside, the entire duration (6:58) is a great demonstration that a filmmaker does not need dialogue or narration to make the viewer melt into the story.

I remember this.

The music and visuals are haunting, but set the right tone for the film.

And you're right, it has a very strong, pervasive feel to it.

Something you think about long after watching it.

I stumbled upon this video a while back.
Pretty nice stuff.

It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.
