Little Red Robot Hunter is an original 2D animated short I wrote, designed and animated as my graduation project from SAE Institute.
This film was an absolute joy to work on, made using a mixture of hand-drawn animation, painted backgrounds and multiplane compositing effects. Following the recent tradition of reinterpreting fairytales, it explores the idea of Little Red Riding Hood being retold as a futuristic chase scene, where a young woman living in the woods is confronted by a Terminator-like robot wolf.
