Progressbar, a short film

Vincent Broquaire's "Progressbar" is a short film illustrating the most significant aphorism of the Danny O'Brien canon: "Those progress-bars don't watch themselves." They certainly don't -- the hypnogogic nature of the erratic progress-bar, with its intermittent, inscrutable reward-system, is one of the signal motifs of the Internet era. If they ever make a feature film out of Screenshots of Despair, this should be the animation for the opening credits.
