Morning Cowboy

Today is the first day of the rest of his life. Diminutive office worker Jose is breaking out of his dreary routine and fulfilling his dream of being a cowboy. It's time for him to pull on his boots and hop onto his horse. Giddyup! Refreshingly funny and drawn with loose strokes, this animated short is itself like a wake-up call: it is never too late. Let people think what they want – live your dreams and make every day count.
