Disney Dreams do come true!
We all loved drawing when we were children. Many of us weren’t that good at it, but some kids had such a passion for illustrating that they never stopped. Most artists dream of hitting it big. But like with most talents, the odds of success are slim. But it does happen.
Such is the case with this indie filmmaker who made it on his own. His name is Jacob Frey and he wrote, directed and animated the The Present. It’s been screened at over 180 film festivals around the world and has received over 50 awards. No wonder Disney took notice!
Kid these days…
The animation begins with an average kid playing video games in a dark room. His mom comes in with a present and sets it on the coffee table and tells him to open it.
Everyone needs a dog
He is excited to see she has given him a dog! Until he sees the dog is missing a limb and throws him on the ground disgusted. He goes back to playing video games.
He just wants to play
The dog wants to play and tries to get the boy’s attention. He continues to try playing video games but eventually he has a change of heart. Then we get hit with the plot twist.
