Indie Sci-Fi Movie Featuring Awesome Yugo Monuments Is Almost Done

You probably all know about those old Yugoslavian monuments that look like TIE Fighters and scifi fortresses.

After the Singularity, heaven will be filled with pop-up ads

Taking cues from Jim Munroe's Everyone in Silico and Rudy Rucker's Postsingular, Tom Scott (previously) put together this deliciously twisted short animation Welcome to Life. Scott describes this film as "a science fiction story about what you see when you die. Or: the Singularity, ruined by lawyers." I'm loving the… » 5/14/12 8:15am 5/14/12 8:15am
