Borrowed Time captures a lonely sheriff as he stares down the barrel of a painful memory from his past. The film has a plaintive score by composer Gustavo Santaolalla (Brokeback Mountain, Babel).
“The goal for us was to make something that kind of contested the notion of animation being a genre, and one for children specifically,” Hamou-Lhadj says in an accompanying featurette. “ We really wanted to make something that was a little bit more adult in the thematic choices and show that animation could be a medium to tell any sort of story.”
To that end, Borrowed Time accomplishes more in six minutes than most movies do in two hours. (Editor’s note: The directors have turned the video on private. Below, we’ve embedded the trailer.)
Borrowed Time is a fitting title, given the circumstances Coats and Hamou-Lhadj made the film under. It was by possible through Pixar’s Co-op program, an internal professional development program that allows employees to use Pixar resources in their free time. The film took over five years to make.
“There were a lot of technical hurdles,” Coats told Carton Brew. “There’s a team of people who are usually on one of our movies that we really didn’t have available to help on our team. So we had to build everything.”
