Not Quite Future Crimes: The Final Moments of Karl Brant

Sure there is crime-predicting software out there. Cameras and computers can monitor a populace with the eventual belief that maybe, just maybe, we will be able to predict crime before it happens. It's what launched the Tom Cruise movie Minority Report. But what if there was another way? What if, instead of trying to predict the criminal, we could interview the victim of a murder after the fact?

The short film The Final Moments of Karl Brant tries to answer that very question. Here's the official synopsis:

Set in the near future where experimental technology allows two detectives to bring a murder victim back to life in a digital state in order to question him about his final moments.

The question is, can a victim get enough detail to solve their own murder? Not to mention what would it be like to be forced to come to terms afterward with your own death? (Also, that IS in fact Pee Wee Herman, otherwise known as Paul Reubens, as the Good Dr. Ferryman.)
