Just Another Reminder That ‘Life Sucks’

A new short-form animated series has arrived online to break up your existential doldrums. Life Sucks but at Least I’ve Got Elbows blends live-action and 3D animation to follow it’s thumb-sized protagonists as they navigate our world through 12 angsty episodes.

Life Sucks centers on a small family wherein a precocious 9-year old pesters her philosophical father about life’s big questions: Love, Death, Religion, etc. Dad takes an admirable stab at satisfying his daughter’s curiosity, between his son’s irreverent interjections and traumatic memories of his not-in-the-picture ex-wife. And viewers are helpfully reminded by their faithful if obnoxious bird companion throughout, that “Life sucks.”

The series is created by multi-award winning filmmaker Nicola Piovesan and written by slightly-fewer-awards winner Matt Willis-Jones. Michael McConnohie voices Dad and is joined by young talents Lizzie Freeman and Hayley Nelson.

You can be reminded that Life Sucks on Facebook and YouTube.
