Red Rum - A film about a deeply disturbed rodent

Why hello there. It is of nice of you to have stopped by for a little bit of SQUIRREL INSANITY!!! This blog is for the production of my short film entitled 'Red Rum'. It concerns a paranoid red squirrel by the name of Rum, and the stress that is struck into his life by a certain grey squirrel moving next door. There is also a funny looking fox, by the name of Fox, involved.

Here I shall showcase the progress of my film. And perhaps a tad of the insanity that shall come with making it.


This is Rum. The main character of the film. Which is probably quite obvious. Another obvious statement is that he is a red squirrel. And a bit mental.

Some More Drawings n Stuff

Here we have Rum explaining his issues to his best friend Fox.
A nice little title page here. A poster design I'm thinking of perhaps... Doesn't give too much away, yet a blood covered acorn should always be intriguing.

Rum looking mentally disturbed. Again.
Fox on his Tri-cycle, and just generally looking cute.

Rum looking a bit rabid after seeing Fox become friends with the DREADED GREY SQUIRREL!!!

Some more drawings from various scenes in the film. I like the axe scene. Me gusta mucho sangre. Mwah ha ha ha ha!

Here are some drawings of Fox. He is the rather dim-witted friend of Rum. But a hell of a nice guy!

Here are some of my character sheets for Rum himself.


Yes. I have made a blog. Woooo. But it's for my amazing upcoming new short film titled 'Red Rum'! Ah yes. It shall be great. And here I shall share my lovely drawings of mentally disturbed squirrels and occasionally some of the 'creepy' looking Fox.

'Red Rum' shall be an ALL 2D production. Apart from maybe a tiny bit of After Effects. But I don't think that makes it any less 2D or any less traditional. The film is currently still in pre-production, although the story and character designs are all sorted out. I shall be posting stuff soon, so if you care to come back and see, that would be nice.
