“Achieving Lift” is a stylized steampunk aesthetic, 3D animated film that follows the perspective of a young adventurous boy on a visit to the library with his mother. Waiting at the reception desk, the young boy’s interest is peaked when the motorized restocking lift, piloted by the librarian, comes to a stop in front of him.
