Short Film: Borrowed Time

It may look like a Pixar film, but it sure as heck doesn’t feel like one. Two of Pixar’s best animators, Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj, put this short together in their spare time, a passion project that stuns in just 6 minutes.

This simple story is expertly told through top-notch animation and a score by Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla, defying the usual expectation for an animated film. With Pixar’s usual attention to detail and nods to the bonds of family, Coats and Hamou-Lhadj are prepared to break your heart in about as much time as it takes to make a sandwich.



Check out our comments section to watch the film – it’s only available for a short time and will almost certainly be a contender come Oscar time.

    What a treat: a movie review that comes with the entire movie! I thought “Borrowed Time” was very well done. “The story was simply but effectively presented. It’ll be a strong contender for an Oscar, I think.
