Mouse for sale – animated short film from Wouter Bongaerts

”Mouse for sale” – animated short film from Wouter Bongaerts on Vimeo.

Snickers is a lonely mouse in a petshop, craving to be bought by someone. But he’s got one big problem: his huge ears. The kids entering the store keep laughing at him. Will Snickers find the buddy he so desires, someone who will take him for who he is?

''Mouse for sale'' is the animated short that I made as a graduation film, during the last year of my animation studies in Genk, Belgium. Took me a year to make and I still love that little mouse…
