There's something wrong with the audio in the downloadable clip. It's kind of cacophonic (it shows both in Quicktime and Videolan so that should not be just my problem).
Also, for that combination of codec and resolution, the bitrate is way too low (in fact, the Flash Video version looks better)

As for the movie, it's very well done, and the switch to POV was a nice touch.

This is a fantastic short film, sad and happy ending at the same time, he will no longer "live" but has managed to see what he was dreaming for a long time, I really enjoyed it. The music is simply wonderful! Great score and it fits really well with the short film.

The animation is really well done, there is some scenes where I would have expected things a little faster to be animated but the overall short just looks great! Congratulations!
