The story behind Christopher Kezelos' stop-motion video titled 'Zero,' which utilizes little voodoo dolls as its characters, follows the time-tested tale of the uprising of the underdog.

'Zero' is a short film by Australian director Christopher Kezelos, who currently resides in Los Angeles. According to the director, 'Zero' is a tale in which "an oppressed zero discovers that through determination, courage, and love, nothing can be truly something." I'm reminded of my childhood when I watch this, when great feature-length stop-motion features like 'James and The Giant Peach' and 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' dominated box offices. The story of 'Zero' is equally as endearing as its visuals and I'm really glad to see the cute little voodoo dolls that I used to admire in various retail stores finally used as characters in a narrative.
