What even is 'Remarkably Bold Venture of the Rabbit'?

Remarkably Bold Venture of the Rabbit is a short animated film by Tim Drage.
It was made in the year 2000 as Tim's final project for BA Animation at the University of Wales College Newport.

The film concerns the activities of a Rabbit and her mummified robot friend who set out to free some ants from the clutches of an evil Mad Scientist. Will they infiltrate his anti-ant plant? Can they defeat his security systems? What's he got against the ants anyway, and are they as innocent as they seem? Why don't they rescue that poor bear too? What does it all mean? What's going on? Whose hands are those? What!?

All these questions, and more, will be asked when you see the film!

The film was constructed fairly haphazardly via many different animation techniques, including stop-motion (filmed on Super-8), 3D computer models, morphed paintings, 2D digital cutouts and the odd bit of live-action for good measure. I'm pleased with the result, and I hope you enjoy it too!

Big thanks are due to all the people who helped me make this film, especially Gill Bliss, Peter Brook, Stan Evens, Michael Leigh, Tony Mines, Chi Mason and Keith Henderson (AKA Cheef Keef).
