SUBMIT A FILM: https://www.shortoftheweek.com/submit/ FULL REVIEW: https://www.shortoftheweek.com/2018/12/08/lost-found/ "This wedding of raw craft and storytelling is quite mature here. Generously funded by Screen Australia, we’re used to stop-motion being a contained craft, executed with models in small spaces, but this film is on a different scale entirely. The character animation is incorporated into a life-size sushi restaurant set that was built from scratch, and this decision pays off in the impressive camera direction that results—the production is able to go wide and really play with perspective and depth of field in a way that is rare for the form." - Curator Jason Sondhi https://www.lostandfound.film https://www.instagram.com/lostandfoundshort 7mins / Australia / 2018 Behind the scenes: vimeo.com/256204562 DIRECTED BY Andrew Goldsmith & Bradley Slabe PRODUCED BY Lucy J.
