Mars Two (USA | 2016, 3 min)

Directed by: Robin Deary

An animated short film of a 90's television infomercial parody about a one way trip to Mars gone horribly wrong. Mars Two features a colorful cast of pioneers who share their testimonials with aspiring voyageurs, highlighting the many wonders of the Red Rock Planet; however, Mars doesn't seem to be all that it's cracked up to be. From apocalyptic weather to hostile vegetation, this 'land of enchantment, wonder and serenity' turns out to be quite contrary to what's being promoted. Enduring through disaster after disaster, the cast tries their best to maintain their optimistic composure as the Martian planet quickly descends into catastrophic annihilation.
