F is for Fail – Brent Barson

This is a totally awesome display of creativity. I saw this vid from the PGDA fb wall, I’ve probably watched this for more than 15 times but I still can’t get over how painfully detailed it is. Enjoy.

F is for FAIL from Brent Barson on Vimeo.
F is for Fail is a short film about the creative process, and the failure we always encounter, but usually overcome. Told using the alphabet, each letter informs us of the state of the protagonist’s creativity/state of mind. Each letter has two words associated with it (except A and Z); sometimes the positive word overpowers the negative word, and vice-versa.
