The Golden Gecko

The Golden Gecko tells a story of a lone gecko who finds himself held captive by a hungry (but lazy) monkey. Doomed to wind up this monkey's servant forever, the gecko catches a lucky break only to find himself lost in an unknown jungle world. An encounter with a quirky spider leads him to follow a mysterious "Echo of a Gecko" that guides him to a new and unexpected home.

Director Biography - Rich K

For the very first time, In 2012 or so, being tempted by a discounted $19.99 box of a light version animation software, I bought it and began to tinker while watching tutorials. Once I got a grasp of the basics, the love of telling stories compelled me to keep going until this moment.

My father told me wonderful and creative bedtime stories that were so magical to me, and I always thought if I could bring something akin to those stories to life, then, well, what could be better than that?

I'm thoroughly thrilled with the world I've been creating, and now the sky (and imagination) are the limits.

The Golden Gecko is my most accomplished animation to date, and I'm looking forward to the next dozen or so projects I have lined up for the future.
