The KICKSTARTER for The Rhino and the Redbill is now live! Uncover a journey about friendship and survival in this animated, action-adventure pilot. Follow the link to see how you can get involved!


In the wild, Rhinos and Red-Billed Oxpeckers have a very unique symbiotic relationship. The oxpeckers spend their day nestled on top of the rhino for food and protection, and in return they help to alert the often visually-impaired rhinos if there is danger in the area. They can however, be a nuisance to their hosts, often picking at wounds when searching for food, and their bond can quickly turn parasitic. 

Based on their relationship in the wild, The Rhino and the Redbill is an action-adventure short about a blind rhinoceros named Niles, and a flight-impaired oxpecker named Redford, working together to survive the harsh realities of a drought ravaged wilderness. Scorchwater Valley is dying and it's taking everyone else down with it. It's every creature for themselves as social structures have collapsed and factions of carnivorous gangs, evil cults, and deadly poachers struggle to survive. Niles and Redford have to work together to survive in a dying world, provided they can survive each other.


We've had plenty of great and talented people helping to develop this project to what it is today. Big thanks to our two leads Foster "Adler" Eber (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNEX...) and Richie Ammons (www.richieammonsvo.com), playing Red and Niles respectively. This project wouldn't have been possible without them.


Also in our talented cast is Rob Schwarb (https://robb0226.wixsite.com/robschwa...), who has been contributing additional voices. We would also like to thank JLFM97 (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwTY...) for the music he has been providing for the project. We've had some great people helping out with this project, with plenty more we'll be adding along the way.
