Piper: The Creative Oscar Winner That Will Melt your Heart

One of the joys of seeing popular movies by Pixar are the short films that come with them. I first saw the Pixar short, Piper, when I watched Finding Dory, last July. I thought it was cute and definitely one of my favorite Pixar shorts. It stars a baby sandpiper taking her first steps from the nest into the big and scary world.

To those who haven’t heard, it just won an Academy Award for the Best Animated Short Film. But that’s not to say it was an easy task to produce the film. This short took three years to complete. Three years for a six minute short film. It makes me wonder how we ever get any animated films completed as all.

This short will leave film school students, dreamers and creatives with inspiration to make films not matter the length.
