Baelin (Rowan Bettjeman), a simple background NPC in the video game 'Skycraft' has been walking the same route for as long as he can remember. However, his peaceful (and mindless) routine is violently shaken as a short-tempered Adventurer (Ben Van Lier) drags him off his path and into a dangerous quest to escort a mysterious NPC girl named Willow (Phoenix Cross) across the harsh world of Azerim.

I mean if we could take it as an allegory to our current lives which are dominated by narratives pushed by SocialMedia/MSM/GOV/CORP - this NPC shows us that sometimes stepping out of the path which was laid to you may bring an adventure which will bring change, so maybe sometimes it's good to stop and take a look around us instead of walking the path which was preset for us. Thanks for this short was really good.

Wish the ending was NPC man realizing something was different about Baelen and offering a quest, with which Baelen responds with an affirmative, "Hu ha!" Loved the movie guys. :)

It's not wrong, on 15:22 it's made clear she does that because they're both NPCs and are programmed only to deal with adventurers.

Wall of Text incoming.... In all honesty, this half-an-hour movie ended up either accidently as one of the best short movies with a really confusing but then good story, or is was all well planned and well written and of course very well executed. The landscapes and scenerie are absolutly astonishing, the music is just perfect, the special effects are very, very good, ALL actors are doing a perfect job, the story, the more you think of it, is very well thought through, there is one-take fight-scenes, the costumes are awesome. There is just almost nothing to complain. The only flaw is one thing, sometimes you hear, that the voices were recorded in a studio. But that's about it. There is Rowan, who can bring so many different meanings in to just 1 line. And i thought, Phoenix Cross does a very, very good job at acting too, and there couldn't be anyone better playing her role as Willow. The annoyed Player Ben, who is so pissed about this "game" at all, brings exactly that on point. Storywise, my take is, if an NPC gets away somehow from his routine/route he was programmed for, he gets a conscience. Of course lots of NPC's are unvulnerable. When Ben tried to kill an NPC, he gets a penalty, in his case character death. You just leave NPC's alone. When Baelin killed/penalized the Player Ben, he was alone outside his route with another NPC Willow, suddenly becoming aware, there is something more outside his route, finding and finishing his own Quest, returning happy and with a bit of awareness, that there is more to his programmed life, than it seems, and you can even DO more, than you're programmed for (the slap to the thief). If you want to take it even deeper: Living your 9to5-life isn't all. If you want, you can do more. You just need to be aware of that yourself. Maybe someone needs to force you away from your daily routine. My take on this: Hats off to this masterpiece. It deserves billions of views. More of this please P.S.: my gosh, New Zealand is so beautiful
