Weighed down by ambition and expectation, Claire feels anxiety and shame as her birthday serves as a reminder of her underachievement.

THE LAST COLORFUL NOTE
Dir. Alex Mallis. 4 min.
A series of cheerful notes from middle school quickly turn sour. Alex Mallis got a lot of notes from girls back in the day, so he decided to bring them to life as a short video, THE LAST COLORFUL NOTE. Alternately funny, awkward, and ridiculous, the quotes are ’95% verbatim.’
