Hey everyone, it's Tiffany again! Today I'm excited to announce the launch of a new short film called "Traveling Daru", created by the same staff behind Makoto Shinkai's "5 Centimeters per Second" and "The Place Promised in Our Early Days". This heartwarming piece tells the story of Daru, a handmade stuffed toy, who goes on a journey searching for its owner after they get separated at the airport. Despite the very limited dialogue, the music and smooth animation is more than enough to convey the emotions and feelings of the story, and I will admit, I found myself choking up at more than one point during the film. Don't be fooled by the child-like art style and simple plot; "Traveling Daru" is a wonderfully told tale that appeals to both adults and children alike, and at 10 minutes and 30 seconds, it's easily viewable in one sitting.

Traveling Daru
will launch TONIGHT, August 6, at 6pm (PDT), available to both Free and Premium users, so don't take my word for it, go check it out for yourselves!
