Director Statement

My senior thesis animation film, "Rat and Croc! Best Friends Forever" is a film is deeply inspired by the slapstick comedy and memorable characters of Looney Tunes, the wacky world and humor of The Simpsons, and the surreal, hand-made quality of independent animator Bill Plympton. All of these works deeply influenced the story, humor, and even methodology of the film.
