Vermin >>>Updated<<<

************UPDATEDUPDATEUPDATEDUPDATEDUPDATEDUPDATED*************



Most of these sketches were done years ago, way before RATATOUILLE, for a pitch called NETRATS, an internet language-school for kids. It never happened, and the whole thing ended up as a bilingual edition of National Geographic for kids and eventually as a TVshow. I was no longer involved with the design. The host of this program is a CG-rat and there are 2D clips in the show as well. The CG-part was designed and animated by my very good friends from 4K studio in Berlin, he 2D-bits by Trickompany Hamburg, I believe.

























Since Uli is posting rats, I of course have to do the same thing. Here are some rodents from over the past years, enjoy...

* Just noticed that theres something wrong with the colors ....hmmmmm

wow, looks a lot like a set of conceptual characters for Ratatouille. (not saying at all that you stole it, just my first thoughts when I saw it)

Yes, parts of the 2-D stuff were done in Hamburg. I animated the TV-Commercial for it. Just one little Scene, where she says "Nice to see you". I think the rest was done in asia or elsewhere, OF COUSE !!
