Thoughts on story and color
Traditionally we hold true the notion that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Therefore, I've chosen to have the eyes remain colored throughout the short. The idea is that they possess the only thing immortal about man; the soul. This keeps to my theme that any artificial means of elongating the life of the body is futile as we all die. The only thing that lives on is our spirit. Not necessarily in the religious sense, but the intangible spirit of who we are that is imprinted on our surviving friends, family, culture. So the eyes become a visual metaphor for the soul in surviving the whole ordeal.
