About this video
CG Animated Short Film ”Till This Day” is about a man with a haunted past visits a town where an accident took place that claimed his brother, he returns to face his past, but not all is what it seems. (I'm adding the trailer because the short film is well over the max upload size limit) (WATCH THE WHOLE FILM HERE - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyxZSPHBJpw&t=2s ) The story is about a man who used to work in the coal mines, Centralia, PA. When an accident happened a fire broke out. He worked there along with his brother who strangely disappeared in the mines when the fire appeared. Many years after he decides to come back to this ghost town because he keeps on having flashback & hallucinations about the incident. He comes back to find his brother. The incident is based on a true story. The Centralia mine fire is a coal-seam fire that has been burning underneath the borough of Centralia, Pennsylvania, United States, since at least May 27, 1962. Its original cause is still a matter of debate. It is burning in underground coal mines at depths of up to 300 feet over an 8-mile stretch of 3,700 acres. As he comes back he experiences visions & hallucinations of his brother. He faints out and finds himself deep in the burning mines when he panics and starts running. Afterwards he finds himself in the control room where they used to process the coal. He wanders around where he has his last vision of his lost brother and that’s when the short film ends. Right at the end we come to realize that man never had a brother. It was all in his head. While the majority of hallucinations reported in primary psychotic disorders are auditory, they may also be visual, olfactory, tactile, or gustatory. Visual hallucinations have been reported in 16%–72% of patients with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder. The day the disaster happened he had unlocked this atrocious disorder in the accumulation of stress and emotional life events like the following one. Physical, genetic, psychological and environmental factors can make a person more likely to develop the condition even the toxic fumes from the mine fire could trigger a psychotic episode.
