Why Watch? Because it’s not easy being nothing.

With gorgeously detailed yarn-based stop motion, this inspiring short tells a tale of determination even as we stare out on the beginning of a lonely path. While the 9s of this world live it up, the 0s have a much harder row to hoe.

But even in the face of hardships (or because of them), a particular 0 can avoid being a negative number and find his true worth.

The design here is as sharp as the storytelling. Plus, it’s not such a bad short for this Father’s Day weekend…

What does it cost? Just 11 minutes of your time.
