This Animated Video Illustrates Why Selfies Are Dangerous

With social networks encouraging us to show off to our friends and front-facing smartphone cameras making it easier than ever before to snap a selfie (or a few), I’m worried technology is making us more conceited than ever. Taking too many photos of yourself can lead you to be over self-aware, spotting flaws where there are none and forgetting to pay attention to the world around you!

“Selfie” is a short animated film by animator, illustrator and music maker Andy Martin created for Pictoplasma’s #CharacterSelfie project. The short is, in Martin’s own words, a “60-second warning about self-obsession.”
