This amazing animated short was created by 22 year-old Kaleb Lechowski.
The beautifully animated short is titled Rha, and looks gorgeous for only having a single animator working on it for 7 short months.
The story centers around an alien creature known as Rha, that is being interrogated by a machine overlord. Rha recounts that his species were the protectors of the universe when their own military mechanisms turned against them.
Their force consisted mostly of independent machines, who then sought to destroy Rha’s home planet and species.
The film was written, directed, and created by Lechowski. He did have some additional assistance with the sounds and voice acting, one of whom is video game legend David Masterson. However everything else the light touches Simba, was created by Lechowski.
Lechowki’s amazing sculpting skills aren’t limited to just a computer and mouse. Just this past year he made a fantastic looking Hydralisk head that you can see here:
He also made an amazing StarCraft outfit that he features on his youtube page, along with the initial teaser and work done on Rha. Kaleb Lechowski is a film student at Mediadesign Hochschule in Berlin, Germany. The brilliant student is already being hailed as a sci-fi prodigy.
