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.

PRODUCTION BIBLE finished! At last.

Well, I actually finished it last week to be fair. And I THINK it is good... Now I just need to skip on doon to the print shop and see how much emptier this job will make my bank account. Ah the joys. I would put it up here, but it is almost 40 pages... SO I can't be bothered. Though soon I shall put up some example pages, or perhaps a photo or two of the final book.

Now though, it is dissertation time. Woo.

Squirrel Research

So, I figured that ol' Edinburgo would be a good place for some squirrel research as there are always LOADS of squirrels all over Princess Street Gardens. BUT guess what...? NOT ONE SQUIRREL!!!

Was mightily disappointed. It was the one place I was sure i could get some real life research done. What happened to you squirrels?? I hope you are all ok....

Did you emigrate? I wouldn't blame you.
