Check out The Magnum Opus, the follow-up to our multi-award winning film, The Maker - http://bit.ly/TheMagnumOpus

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.

Since its release on YouTube in May 25, 2011, Zero has been translated into over 40 languages by its many enthusiastic fans. To create translations in your language, visit this page:

Why do you all think its about racism? To me personally it leans more towards disability, but even so, I doubt it has anything to do with that. Hatred for people with different race and having disabilities have it much better than many years ago, sure it may not be perfect, but you can't expect it to be. Edit; I know its about problems with a society, I was just stating my opinion that I don't believe it has anything to do with Racism or putting down people with disabilities (though that is possible). Its a dystopia, if you want to see a good dystopian animation go see "Being Pretty" by David James Armsby. This animation makes it much more obvious the society they are in don't like anyone different; for example gays and as such, but Zero doesn't make it as obvious as people with actual words carved in their heads, instead numbers taking their place.

So beautiful! The narration touched my soul and had me like "I'm a Zero too!😣" Ending was epic! I expected it to be a 100 for some reason, but infinity is so much better!

I think this says something about our society and about how someone is being judged for who they are when it's not their fault... it's sad knowing that everyone has somrthing incommon but ppl cant look past those differences to see that they have something in common with the other person. I hope ppl learn from this video that if we open our eyes we can see past the difference and see how everyone is alike.
