[Videos] Yellow Sticky Notes

As I was killing time on YouTube today, I came across this featured video by renowned Canadian animator Jeff Chiba Stearns entitled, "Yellow Sticky Notes". It's a very interesting piece about how his life became overly focused on his own tasks and to-do lists as documented on yellow sticky notes with him inadvertently ignoring all these major world events happening beyond.

I'm a big fan of animation and this particular piece really struck me, not just in terms of the quality of the animation but more the message he was trying to convey. It's because of films like this that I maintain a healthy respect for those who use short films, commercials and even music videos to tell a story. It's like visual poetry where you need to maximize every image as a poet would careful select every word.
