The story of The Lost Thing is about a boy who discovers a bizarre looking creature while out collecting bottle tops at the beach. Having guessed it is lost, he tries to find out who owns it or where it belongs, but is met with mute indifference from everyone else, who barely notice its presence, each unwilling to entertain this uninvited interruption to their day to day lives. For reasons he does not explain, the boy empathizes with the creature, and sets out to find a ‘place’ for it.
Supervising sound editor and sound designer John Kassab discusses his extensive work on this animated masterpiece bringing to life the world of The Lost Thing.
Directors Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann were also winners for Best Animated Short Film for The Lost Thing at the 83rd Academy Awards in 2011.
