Don Hertzfeldt says animating a short film is “like writing a novel by etching into a rock one letter at a time with your fingernails.” His last three films have taken over a year to produce, sometimes two, and only 22 minutes apiece to watch.

Craig Thompson’s Blankets is the longest single-volume graphic novel ever written, taking around 4 years to produce, and taking only 3 hours to read.

Are games the only medium where the time it takes to experience the work might be longer than the time it takes to create it? Possibly, and by several orders of magnitude.
