Happiness in a Box Short Film Title?
March 1, 2005 7:35 PM   Subscribe

Years ago on atomfilms.com, I watched a little movie that I'd like to find again online. I think it was claymation. It depicted a depressed factory worker who invented some physical, manufacturable form of Happiness. He was happy with his invention for a time, sharing it with friends, but eventually started his own factory making his new Happiness to become rich, at which point he became depressed again.

Most, if not all of the film in question was used in a music video soon after I saw it online, but unfortunately I don't know the name of either the music video, or the short animation. The film did not have any speaking, as far as I can remember.

More by Mark Osborn. This DVD version has a ton of extras and is completely worth it.

FWIW, the music video was "Hell Bent" by Kenna. More itself uses different music, and I recall seeing the music video on MTV around 1998-2000ish..

The music in More is "Elegia" by New Order, if you were wondering.

It was even nominated for an Oscar in 1998.
