Yesterday I took Max to see “Finding Dory“. It was his first cinema experience – a day I’d looked forward to for a long time. Besides spilling popcorn everywhere it went without any incidents and we both enjoyed the much anticipated Pixar sequel.
Before the movie Pixar premiered a 6 minute short film called “Piper”. A short that was three years in the making about a baby sandpiper braving the waters for the first time.
Piper has to be the best animated short film I’ve ever seen. The meticulous & groundbreaking animated detail in the feathers, sand and water make it feel more like a David Attenborough wildlife documentary.
There’s a great read on Vanity Fair about the making of the short and a teaser trailer below.
