TV presenter: ‘We regret to inform you that the end of the world is scheduled for the month of December 2012. This unfortunate event will be brought about by an asteroid colliding with Earth. The National Agency for World Survival (NAWS) is organising auditions, to be broadcast on TV, for those wishing to obtain a visa for survival.’ This humorous animated short film tells how some will manage to obtain a visa for survival on the eve of doomsday, while others are granted free counselling on how to make it into paradise.
