Two brilliant stop-motion animated short films by Zealous Creative. Both are very emotionally powerful films, with Zero born into a world of numbers, an oppressed zero discovers that through determination, courage, and love, nothing can be truly something. The Maker is quite simply amazing, set in a fantasy world where a strange creature races against time to make the most important and beautiful creation of his life. In 2010, film-making husband and wife duo Christopher and Christine Kezelos screened their first stop-motion animation called Zero in over 50 international film festivals, winning 15 awards. In 2011 their follow-up stop-motion short called The Maker is proving to be and even bigger hit.
ZERO – with a powerful message about prejudice and persecution.
“The Maker explores the preciousness of our moments on earth, the short time we have with loved ones and the enjoyment of ones life’s work and purpose. In their fleeting existence our characters experience joy, love, hard work, purpose, loss and loneliness. As the tagline suggests, ‘life is what you make it’ and we are all makers in this world”. – Director Christopher Kezelos
