The Last Man: A Post-Apocalyptic Short Story

The Last Man is a beautifully-made independent short film by Gavin Rothery, perhaps best known until now as the visual effects supervisor on the sci-fi movie Moon (fans of that film will see similarities in design). Set in a post-apocalyptic world, The Last Man follows a soldier woken from suspended animation who discovers that he may just be the last human alive.

The fact that there is basically one actor and no dialogue for nearly the entirety of its 20 minute running time, and yet it holds your interest until the very end, says plenty about the quality of this film.
