American Failure is a short animation depicting the enormous loss of life in the COVID-19 pandemic. With news about coronavirus focusing on the quarantine and the fierce disagreement on mask mandates, this project seeks to refocus our attention on the one irreversible consequence of our failure - the lives of our fellow Americans.

Support the Cause
Hello! My name is Luke and I am a recent high-school graduate from Lincoln, Nebraska. I will never use ads to raise funding for this project, so I am turning to you, viewers who wish to see change come November, and asking for support to continue this project. If you cannot donate, feel free to spread awareness about this project through social media and word-of-mouth! All donations made to this project will be used to develop future American Failure installments. Your support will help me produce animations showing the scale of the many disasters we face as a country. Help me keep this website running:
The American Failure animation is best viewed on a modern computer and web browser. If using a mobile device, view the animation in landscape orientation. If the frame rate is choppy or there are other technical problems, we recommend viewing the animation on our YouTube channel or connecting to a faster wifi network. Please feel free to reach out to me about any technical issues you experience - I will do my best to resolve it immediately.
This animation was produced by Luke Moberly. The icons used in this project are products of FontAwesome.
