Finity Calling (15mins)

an animated short by Jasper Kuipers

An endless void stretches out behind the windows of a large room. Only windows, no doors. It is empty except for five
people sitting at a table that seats six. Their withered bodies adorned with lush fabrics and jewelry, they spend eternity
playing with their food. A charged silence fills the air. Any violation of the strict social rules is immediately suppressed
by the others. When the fragile equilibrium in the group is finally broken by the boy’s constant pestering, things start
spiraling out of control. His mother tries her best to protect both him and herself from the consequences but playing
this double role comes at a high price.
