Shaun Tan’s The Lost Thing trailer. In word, awesome!



Shaun Tan’s fifteen minute animated adaptation of his book The Lost Thing—the story of a boy’s empathy with a lost, er, thing and his attempts to help it find its place—is completed and making the festival circuit. If anyone gets a chance to see it, please report back! I’m dying to see it.

In the meantime, anyone else as in love with Shaun’s work as I am can play around on thelostthing.com.There are character studies, color keys and production drawings to see. And if that is not enough, check out this 5 minute documentary on the movie.

Awesome is right. I have been excited about this since it was first mentioned and I'm thrilled that it is finally done. Just wish we could see it now rather than having to wait.
