The saying "man's best friend" has never been more true.

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

Winning a handful (and by handful I mean almost 60 awards) for their short film at over 180 film festivals worldwide, Jacob Frey and other creators have made one of the best animated shorts to date.

Based on the "Perfection" comic strip by Fabio Coala, "The Present" will give you goosebumps at the end, so make sure to watch its entirety.
