This is for you if you feel, as I have recently, completely overburdened by work!  Load is a Bachelor film project by a group of students at The Animation Workshop. You might argue that students may not have much of an idea about the true nature of work (if you were feeling jaded and a little cruel!) but the visuals in this animated short would seem to indicate otherwise.

In one of the strongest visual metaphors I have seen for quite a while, the protagonist here is covered in green post-it notes from head to toe.  When you have a trillion and one things to do at work and no time in which to do them, this is how you feel!

Hyperbole aside, our unlikely hero finds himself on the outside and slowly but surely he learns an important lesson about priorities that changes his perception of the world around him.
