This year may have been Donkey Kong’s 40th birthday, but what a lot of people don’t know is that this wasn’t his only milestone, as this month marks the 25th anniversary of his glorious tv show. Exactly 25 year ago, the powers of antiquated motion capture technology, Canadian tax dollars, and the audacity of the French, joined forces to create the greatest show in the history of television, and I’ve teamed up with Bootleg Dubs and Napalm Records to produce this celebratory anniversary short!

The Rhino and the Redbill

Year of production: 2020

Running Time: 13 min

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.

Hey there!

       My name is Alex Henderson, I'm an award-winning animator and director from Ontario, Canada, currently running a freelance animation business that works to bring people's animated productions to life! I am a graduate from Sheridan College's Bachelor of Arts in Animation program, with credits in film, television, video games, and advertising.

     Recently I've worked as an animator at DHX Media, directed music videos for Napalm Records, and directed award winning independent productions such as "Breathing Space" and "The Rhino and the Redbill". These days I specialize in blending hand-drawn animation with CGI to create a style that is unique, appealing, and cost-effective, making it accessible for small businesses to create their own animated media. 

    On this site you will find samples of my work, as well as commission information should you be interested in working with me. Thanks for taking the time to visit, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or requests.


My award-winning animated short "Tales from Scorchwater Valley: The Rhino and the Redbill", is now playing in film festival worldwide!
