Serenity Fan Film. Link courtesy of fff.net - not a bad effort really...

Download found under the "Movie Release" heading at the bottom of the page.

CGI here is very impressive. Script is nice and simple, but cuts run very wide (this is about a minute longer than it needs to be) and the script could have done with some tinkering (ie some explaining as to what was happening, and some funny helps).

However, it's certainly well put together and a fine first effort :)
Was that Chopper and Ned Kelly? Go the Aussie (oops) Browncoats. Well Done.

Hmm, I'm having trouble downloading this. When I do, I download a file named 'unknown' which is the right size, but has no extension. Did I do something wrong?
Heh, that's kinda funny. Clever how they did that at the end. Hmm don't suppose it symbolized fandom, with different factions at each other's throats while all in the same boat? Maybe I'm digging too deeply...;-)

Sound like your comp doesn't recognise the file format. Do you have Quicktime? If you do try opening it from there. Not double clicking on the file because that's asking the comp to determine what program it needs. Just open Quicktime and say "open file" then direct it to the file. If it still doesn't work the file may not have loaded properly.
That was pretty cool. Isn't the 'huh' from when Mal opens the box? I wonder how they changed the background like that. Anyhow that was neat.
Hmm... echoes of "Waiting for Godot" as well, which makes sense given the title.
Ah, check, I didn't see the extension, so I wasn't sure what type of file it was, but I don't think I tried using quicktime. Heh, I see now that it actually says 'quicktime' on the page itself. Must not have been fully awake, yet. Thanks, EdDantes.
Guys, this is absolutely hi-larious!

And why is it that the "Thanks to Joss Whedon for Taking Back the Sky" still makes me cry?

The character names allude to Waiting for Godot, as does the solitary tree. The line 'Nothing to be done' is a direct quotation, and there might be others (I don't know Godot very well). More generally, the dénoument is in the tradition of the theatre of the Absurd. And, since it's a Beckettian spin on the Firefly 'verse, I'm inclined to think that the slow pacing is deliberate.
