A few days ago, a video was posted to Vimeo that the Internet buzzing over the weekend. With over half a million views and universal praise, the response to the sci-fi short R´ha would be impressive on its own. Add in that the effects look Hollywood good and that it was written, directed, and animated by a 22 year-old German film student named Kaleb Lechowski, and the video becomes downright staggering. Watch it for yourself after the break.


The short film is an interrogation scene from a much larger plot. Machines have taken over an alien planet, and a computer entity tries to torture one of the aliens to find out where the rest of his people have escaped to.

While the short doesn’t exactly have a unique storyline, it’s effectively made and has a nice twist. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the short has sparked the interest of some film execs, and Kaleb is expected to head to Hollywood later this month (presumably for meetings).

You can follow Kaleb and R’ha on Facebook, Tumblr, DeviantArt, and YouTube. He’s very open about his process and has said there will be more work put out related to R’ha.
