Oliver Jeffers’ Lost and Found, Animated

Oliver Jeffers' Lost & Found

If you’re a long-time reader of this blog you’ll probably already be aware of my respect for illustrator and childrens’ book artist Oliver Jeffers. This, however, managed to totally slip under my radar.

A 25-minute CG-animated adaptation of his second picture book Lost and Found won the TV Special Award at Annecy a couple of days ago. Apparently it was shown over here in the UK over Christmas but this is the first I’d heard of it!

I was rather concerned when I discovered that it was CG and not traditional 2D animation because of Oliver’s incredibly stylised art style but it appears London’s Studio AKA and director Philip Hunt have done a wonderful job of adapting it to 3D.

Here’s the trailer, and it appears that it’s already available on DVD in the UK!

    I’m writing a blog ( about a embroidery picture I did with ‘How to Catch a Star’ as my main inspiration. As I was checking all of my links, I too discovered this movie adaptation of ‘Lost and Found’. It’s so awesome! Anyway, in an attempt to find out more, I discovered this post. Would it be okay if I linked back to this postas part of my blog?
