The Kid Should See This

Lost and Found, a bittersweet stop-motion short

“A knitted toy dinosaur must completely unravel itself to save the love of its life.” Lost and Found is a bittersweet, potentially tear-inducing story about a crocheted Amigurumi fox and dinosaur who live in a Japanese restaurant’s lost and found bin. Sad story warning: Parents of younger and/or sensitive kiddos may want to screen this one first.

Go behind the scenes of this stop-motion animation by Australia-based directors Andrew Goldsmith and Bradley Slabe, and produced by Lucy J. Hayes. Slabe also wrote the short.

For more sad but beautifully made tales, watch Father and Daughter by Michaël Dudok De Wit and Premier Automne by Je Regarde.
