I came across the trailer for this short about a year ago. It look really interesting, but couldn’t locate the full version.
Today, when I was looking for my inspiration for the animated short, I thought I would check out the recent winners of the Academy Awards. And hooray! The Lost Thing had won for Best Animated Short. I decided to try to search it out online one more time. And here it is! All fifteen minutes and fifty-four seconds.
The story starts out with a boy finding a lost thing on the beach. And well, you can see for yourself how it ends.
