The Man Who Was Afraid of Falling

Elderly gentleman Ivor lives by himself.  A series of events, beginning with a falling plant pot, turn poor Ivor into a paranoid worry-wart.  Although the fear of falling is probably not a completely unheard of concern for an elderly person, moving into a new home each time a situation 'presents' itself is maaaaybe a bit extreme.  Creator/director/animator Joseph Wallace created a really charming stop motion short, with a little animation thrown in here and there.  I really loved the understated, almost retro look and feel.
