The Wisdom of Pessimism

Claudio Salas culled together an all-star team of designers and animators to help him with his “variety show” style short film for Alain de Boton’s “School of Life” series on YouTube. I jumped on board to design two shots that Claudio then animated. My shots illustrated a pessimistic outlook on advertising (sadvertising) and how technology, such as Instagram, gives our often dull world a new colorful veneer through filters.
