Motion Design Behind the Short Film Epic Fail

Ad

The short film and video art Epic Fail is a really cool motion design project created and shared by Greg Barth on his Behance profile. It is an avant-garde essay that questions how we perceive truth, information and politics, seen through the dual lenses of our real and virtual identities. 

Moved by the political events that shook 2016, the film is inspired by Jean Paul Sartre’s “Nausea”; or how we can develop visual embodiments of our emotions as a catharsis on how to deal with reality.

In a time where post-truth news divides and conservative politics fails to lure in young voters, a extraordinary vote for world peace has dramatic consequences.
