QUORUM Borrowed Time will break your heartThis is easily the darkest and most adult production to come out of the world-famous PIXAR studios.It may bear a startling resemblance to the imagery and themes of new TV series Westworld, but Coats and Hamou-Lhadj have worked on their labour of love for over five years, long before the current smash-hit show was a speck of dust on the pop culture radar.Borrowed Time shows the heartbeaking story of a sherrif in the American Mid-West as he recalls the most devastating and defining moment of his childood.Watch it next:QUORUM Borrowed Time looks a lot like WestworldWesterns are big business right now, with Westworld already a bigger hit than Game of Thrones. Borrowed Time has been a huge success at festivals around the world and has made the qualifying rounds for the Academy Awards, refelecting its powerful universal themes.Hamou-Lhadj said: “A goal for us was to make something that kind of contested the notion of animation being a genre… for children specifically.”We really wanted to make something that was a little bit more adult in the thematic choices, and show that animation could be a medium to tell any sort of story.” What is even more remarkable is the revelation that the pair made the film in their own time.Borrowed Time was made possible via Pixar’s Co-op Program, part of the company’s internal Pixar University professional development program, whereby employees can apply to use the Pixar facilities outside work hours for their own projects.
