The life and death of an adorable meteor

Watch the entire life span of a freshly born meteor as it comes to terms with life, and its inevitable splashy end. This short film is all too bittersweet.

Fallen was realized by Sascha Geddert and Wolfram Kampffmeyer. And yes, yes, we know Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and the sperm whale did it first, but we don't care. There's something so charming about this hot little space rock. We almost wish it wasn't so doomed.
