At this point, it’s almost unsurprising Pixar has churned out another beautifully animated project but what’s astounding is the fact that few animators have.. In their spare time.
The short film dubbed “Borrowing Time” was created over the span of 5 years by animators Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj, both having worked on massive Pixar projects previously such as Toy Story 3, Wall-E & Brave. The epic short film is gracefully centered around a remarkable bond in the Western era, which takes an interesting twist.
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.
Watch the short film above and tell us what you think, while fighting back those tears.
