    A story about death and the difficulty of first facing up to and eventually embracing the inevitable. Put from the perspective of a tightrope walker performing her final act. The inspiration for this comes from various sources, but there is a song from the 'Death and the Maiden' quartet by Franz Schubert I found particularly useful. The Maiden: Oh! leave me! Prithee, leave me! thou grisly man of bone! For life is sweet, is pleasant. Go! leave me now alone! Go! leave me now alone! Death: Give me thy hand, oh! maiden fair to see, For I'm a friend, hath ne'er distress'd thee. Take courage now, and very soon Within mine arms shalt softly rest thee!"

    The inspiration for this comes from various sources, but there is a song from the 'Death and the Maiden' quartet by Franz Schubert I found particularly useful.

    The Maiden:

    Oh! leave me! Prithee, leave me! thou grisly man of bone!
    For life is sweet, is pleasant.
    Go! leave me now alone!
    Go! leave me now alone!

    Death:

    Give me thy hand, oh! maiden fair to see,
    For I'm a friend, hath ne'er distress'd thee.
    Take courage now, and very soon
    Within mine arms shalt softly rest thee!"

this has always been one of my very favorite machinimas, Paul, and I love the story you tell us on Vimeo about how you came by the idea. :)
