Stunning Trailer for Animated Short URS

Its always a pleasure when I come across truly beautiful animation from new and talented animators like this.  Directed by Moritz Mayerhofer, a graduated student at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg of Germany, Urs is a visually stunning 10-minute animated short-film that combines matte paintings and stylize CG characters. He worked on the short for three years as his final thesis project and now its making the festival rounds globally.

Many years Urs looked after his aging mother. But now he sets out for a dangerous journey:
  He carries her up a mountain to find a better place for both of them. But his mother doesn't want to leave her home...

URS is a story about responsibility.  How long can you bear an intolerable condition?  Isn't it good to try to change things?  But what about others.  Can you really decide what's the best for someone else?
