This short film is titled "You Only Live Twice", and it is about an astronaut who crashlanded on a desolate planet. He's alone, and has a photograph reminding him of his lost love.
But then, he discovers he can create projections that come to life, giving him, sort of a second chance at life.
The film comes from Wildlife - Jake Friedman and Scott Friendman - who were responsible for Terry Crews "Old Spice Muscle Music" video a while back. Over at Directors Notes, they give some details about the making of this video:

Many of the crystal elements were animated by hand keyframing to give their reveals a kinetic, almost time-lapse growth effect like you would see with high-speed footage of a flower growing. In addition, several key elements were simulated with cloth-dynamics to give organic animation effects to the cars, trees, houses and other structures that needed to emerge and form out of the ground.
