The Short Animation

This animation might not be suitable for those who are rat phobia (although I find that the rats in the animation are adorable) as there are a lot of rats in the beginning. 

When a city rat was chasing a snack packaging, it met a white rat (with 2W-45 stamped on its body) in a brightly lit lab and fell in love. However, they are separated in the end.

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.

Year 2006
Duration 10 minutes
