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.

“Borrowed Time” is an animated short film, directed by Andrew Coats & Lou Hamou-Lhadj, and produced by Amanda Deering Jones. Music by Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla.

This is simply outstanding.

There is a moment in this where I genuinely shouted out loud without realizing. I can’t tell you what bit or it would be ruined but you’ll know when you see it!

As they explain in the video below, the creators wanted to show that animation isn’t limited to just happy family friendly stories and i’ve gotta say..they did a fantastic job. The level of emotion portrayed with minimal spoken words is testament to their story telling ability.
