It can be hard knowing what's going on in the short-film world, unless it's attached to a Disney or Pixar movie. Fortunately, Vimeo has made it easier to see some of these great pieces of work through their website. That's where I found this wonderful short-film by Jacob Frey. I have to admit that I teared up watching it the first time, and the second time, and okay, I teared up the third time as well, if I'm being honest.
The Present tells the story of a parent who gives her child a puppy as a gift, and from there your heart just melts into a little puddle. Jacob Frey, if you're somehow reading this, just pretend I'm giving you a high-five because this short is phenomenal.
Check The Present out below, but be warned, you might want to grab a tissue, just in case.
