The last patron of an abandoned observatory takes on an impossible task to show the surrounding city something incredible. A short animation about conflicting existences, natural wonders, and petty theft on a grand scale.

‘Borrowed Light’ was a collaboration with Maryland Institute College of Arts student Olivia Huynh (now an animator for Google). It received Staff-Pick on Vimeo and has clocked over 200,000 views as well playing at countless animation festivals around America.

Nominated for Best Sound for an Animated Short Film at the Australian Screen Sound Guild awards.
