Carrot Crazy

Two hunters but only one rabbit, which will win? If the carrot crazy rabbit is anything to go by it will be the one who can offer him the biggest carrot! Or perhaps not - no spoilers, but you need to watch this to the end.

This very funny animated short draws on the history of the genre, with shades of Loony Tunes from the past all the way up to Wallace and Grommit today.

That is not to say it is derivative – this tale of greed and vulnerability is very much twenty first century and bodes well in terms of what its two young animators may produce in the future. Talking of whom, this is the senior thesis at the Ringling College of Art and Design by Dylan VanWormer and Logan Scelina. Well done chaps!
