Completed during the years 2007 and 2008 at le cegep du vieux Montreal, "Uno" is a short 2d animation film that tells the story of a moment in Ratchet's life.

Ratchet lives on an island high in the sky with her companion Hush. Disconnected from others, she finds an ususual way to communicate with her neighbours.

Watch(Vimeo) the movie.

The story of Uno is the predecessor to my fiction story wiktopher. Ratchet is Eka, and her neighbour on another island is Uno (character in wiktopher shares that same name).

There is much more to this project than the film itself, a lot of research went into it.
