Timothy Omundsen, Voltron The End

Voltron The End Short FilmAlex Albrecht‘s Voltron: The End (2011) short film stars Timothy Omundsen and Heather Stewart. Voltron: The End‘s plot synopsis: “When a man regains consciousness in a Voltron battle lion after an “accident” he has to decide does he live a few more minutes or try to tell the world what happened… the end is only the beginning.”

Voltron! I grew up on this cartoon. Spoiler: I love that the pilot sacrifices himself for a higher cause. I mean he is dead either way but it is still a good dramatic moment. *End Spoiler.

From YouTube:

Better than Transformers 3 without a single [explosion] or SFX and in 3 [minutes].

Very true.

Two things about the Voltron short film Alex Albrecht directed: First, Lion pilots wore helmets so the Red Lion pilot in this short should have no head injure. Second, if I remember correctly, the pilots were harressed into the seats (or should be) so the pilot of the Red Lion should not have any rib damage. Why would you dare be in a cockpit of what is essentially a space plane with no restraints or head protection of any change?  What if you have to do an upside maneuver or come to a sudden stop? Regardless, this short film is cool.
