Animations We Love :: "Purl" by Kristen Lester - Pixar SparkShorts

If anyone needed another example of the power of being yourself, Pixar SparkShorts director Kristen Lester weaves (yes, I said it) this beautiful tight knit story about the benefits of staying true to you. You go Purl!

Purl, directed by Kristen Lester and produced by Gillian Libbert-Duncan, features an earnest ball of yarn named Purl who gets a job in a fast-paced, high energy, bro-tastic start-up. Yarny hijinks ensue as she tries to fit in, but how far is she willing to go to get the acceptance she yearns for, and in the end, is it worth it?

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t thinking about the artist Olek the whole time I watched this.
