Zero by Zealous Creative
In a world that judges people by their number, Zero faces constant prejudice and persecution. He walks a lonely path until a chance encounter changes his life forever: he meets a female zero. Together they prove that through determination, courage, and love, nothing can be truly something.
Zero has screened in over 50 festivals and has won 15 awards including ‘Best Animation’ from LA Shorts Fest and the Rhode Island International Film Festival and has been nominated for an AFI Award in the ‘Best Short Animation’ category.
This is why it hurts the way it hurts.
You have too many words in your head. There are too many ways to describe the way you feel. You will never have the luxury of a dull ache.

When silence is prolonged over a certain period of time, it takes on new meaning.
For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.
You’re like the ocean…
Pretty enough on the surface,
but dive down into your depths,
you’ll find beauty most
people never see. Lucky me.
I fell in, headfirst.
