This film isn’t new, but it was just brought to my attention again today after several years. Mark Osborne released the short film “More” in 1998 which was nominated for an Academy Award the same year.
In 6 minutes, “More” tells a very powerful story. The synopsis from the official website goes like this:
The Academy-Award nominated animated short-film tells the story of a lonely inventor, whose colorless existence is brightened only by dreams of the carefree bliss of his youth. By day, he is trapped in a dehumanizing job in a joyless world. But by night, he tinkers away on a visionary invention, desperate to translate his inspiration into something meaningful. When his invention is complete, it will change the way people see the world. But he will find that success comes at a high price, as it changes himself, as well.
Kinda reminds me of a Tool video 🙂
