A Word from Tom Newby
Director of "THE RATRIX"
I made this for fun, and maybe as a demo reel to get hired professionally. I've been animating for years and I dream of working for a company like ILM or Pixar someday. I love to do parodies where I take two concepts and combine them. Fables, pop culture and fairy tales are all fair game to me.
In The Ratrix I put in references (shameless plugs) to my previous works, which also cuts down on the amount of stuff I have to build from scratch. Some would call that cheating...
Originally I was going to have agents chasing him, but I switched to a "burly brawl" sequence involving mouse traps. Some folks might recognize what cooking show I based the kitchen set on...
I hope you enjoy it.
And Thank You Quelli, to whom I owe everything good in my life.
