The Lost Thing

So glad I spotted this fun little flick over at GeekTyrant earlier today. If you have 15 minutes check out this Oscar short films contender, adapted from Shaun Tan's book The Lost Thing.

The"Official Synopsis", nicked from GeekTyrant:

"A boy discovers a bizarre looking creature while out collecting bottle tops at the beach. Realising it is lost, he tries to find out who owns it or where it belongs, but is met with indifference from everyone else, who barely notice its presence, each unwilling to entertain this uninvited interruption to their day to day lives. For reasons he does not explain, the boy empathises with the creature, and sets out to find a ‘place’ for it."
Pop over to G.T. for more about the author & production. I've embedded the film here, but I know my format tends to cut off the edges of the  video screen. Click here to see the full short over at Geek Tyrant.
