One Rat Short

Ratatouille meets The Matrix

“One Rat Short” is a work of love Directed by Alex Weil and created by Charlex Films. From the start we decided not to use anthropomorphic animation. We decided it would take place in two worlds: one so gritty, grimy and dark that the viewer needs to peer into the screen in order to make out the images and the other a sterile white world so brightly lit that you feel the need to turn your head away from the screen. One of the techniques we used was to give a lot of the camera work a hand-held feel and to keep it a little behind the action so that the scenes didn’t seem staged. Lastly and most importantly we kept the story simple and tried to give it heart. The film picked up honors at numerous film festivals, including Best of Show at the Siggraph Computer Animation Festival.
