The strength of a short film can be captured in a simple idea. “The Present” is a worthy animated short from Jacob Frey based on a comic strip by Fabio Coala.    

This multi-award winning short delivers a powerful message and an emotional response to a subject that we can all relate to. 

After a very successful festival circuit, running on over 180 film festivals and winning more than 50 awards, Jacob decided that it was finally time to share “The Present” with the rest of the world.

“The Present” is a graduation short from the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
