A Harrowing Afternoon on the Four-Oh-Five!

A Harrowing Afternoon on the Four-Oh-Five!

405 is an animated three-minute short film produced in 2000 by Bruce Branit and Jeremy Hunt, who created it with almost no money, using only a digital camera and a pair of dual processor computers.  Within a week of its release, 405 had 250,000 downloads, the first short film to become widely distributed on the Internet and it’s generally thought of as one of the very first viral films.  The film shows an American Airlines DC-10 jet making an emergency landing onto the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles, while a Jeep tries to avoid getting crushed in the process.

The young man driving the jeep floors it, but complications arise, and he and the jet are on a collision course with the Little Old Lady from Pasadena, driving ever-so-slowly in her Lincoln.  Miracles can happen, and the old woman manages to have the last word.
