Lovely but a bit depressing.
18 March 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Lost & Found" is a short animated film by Andrew Goldsmith and Bradley Slabe. I am not sure if they actually used stop-motion or used CGI to make it look like stop-motion. Regardless, it's a simple and somewhat depressing tale.

The story begins with a cute toy, a knitted fox, falling into a fountain and it appears to be drowning. Its friend, a stuffed knitted T-Rex, tries to come to the rescue but becomes entangled on a nail...and unravels more and more as it tries to get to its friend.

The stuffed creatures and set look great. The music is also quite good and really works well. The only reason I gave this marvelously made film a score of only 6 is that it is depressing and the ending left me very flat. However, considering how lovely the picture is, I sure hope to see more from these folks.
