  • He he he. I’m sure there’s a life lesson in there but I’m not sure what. Be selfish or die?

    • I think the lesson is when starting a business, the three most important things are location, location, location.

      I hadn’t considered a “life lesson” but there might be one there.

      It is enjoyable, that’s for sure.

      There’s a bit of a Steadman/Scarfe influence going on there, too. That jumped out at me. It is a nice bonus to see it.

    HAHA! Great little story!

    For those who don’t know btw, Fata Morgana is Italian for playful fairy… or I guess in this case a play on the mind.

  • Thanks for your comments, guys! Glad you like the film!

  • Love the voice-acting!
