The present – Animation shortfilm


Lovely shortfilm by Jacob Frey published on Vimeo. The story is based on a comic strip from the Brazilian illustrator Fábio Coala and has won more than 50 awards worldwide.

The story makes us think about disability and how much a dog can help people break those walls that limit ourselves. I always loved how dogs give you love and become your friends without judging, they don’t pity you or themselves if you are in some sort of disadvantage, no one can tell them ‘you’re not able to do this’ and they just live with the same intensity as any other dogs would do. And of course they expect you to do the same, why wouldn’t you?

Enjoy The Present!
