An amazing side project from two Pixar animators – this western will make you think.
“Borrowed Time” is an animated short film directed by Andrew Coats (worked on Brave) & Lou Hamou-Lhadj (a character artist on Wall-E and Toy Story 3). They worked on it between making movies for Pixar over the last 5 years. Unlike their work there this short tells a tale that isn’t for kids. It tells a story about redemption and forgiveness that gets a little heavy. It’s got everything you want in a good short: the animation is beautiful and the story is impactful.
A weathered Sheriff returns to the remains of an accident he has spent a lifetime trying to forget. With each step forward, the memories come flooding back. Faced with his mistake once again, he must find the strength to carry on.
