Josh has a strategy when it comes to nightmares, but his urban-legend-quoting office-mate disagrees — whether the impact from a fall in your dreams will force you awake or kill you while you sleep. In this low-budget-yet-effects-heavy short, Josh has many nightmares to choose from, but which is worse: a violent end, or losing his girlfriend? (5:00)

The video admittedly looks better on Zane's website:
This is a short film by R. Zane Rutledge. He licensed SF Bay Images aerial photography of San Francisco and imported the shots into a 3D animation software producing the effect of flying over San Francisco and in particular, around the Bank of America Tower.
Zane learned about SFBayImages.com aerial photography when the production company he worked for licensed aerial photography for a National Geographic documentary on Roller Coasters, "The Ultimate Roller Coaster". On that project Zane also imported SF Bay Images aerial photography for animations.
