At just 22 years old, Kaleb Lechowski may have gotten his big break after impressing Hollywood with his 6 minute animated sci-fi film that he created for a class project at the Berlin Mediadesign Hochschule.  What Lechowski was able to accomplish on his own, with no budget, matches the look and quality of something you would expect to see from a $150 million Hollywood film.

In an interview with Mashable, Kaleb Lechowski explained how his film R’ha was only his second major project at school, but had the idea for it back in the summer of 2011.  It’s no doubt that he is a fan of science fiction and commented that with that with the genre “you can create almost anything, like creatures, machines, you can create worlds, you can create basically everything.”

Now the German student is headed to Hollywood to meet with some studio executives to discuss turning R’ha into a full feature film.  It is truly amazing what he can do already on his own, and while Lechowski feels that if he was given 10 years he could probably do it all on his own, he is more than happy to get a great team together to make a successful picture destined for the big screen.

Check out the short film below, and get ready to be impressed.  We also recommend visiting the Mashable article in the source link to get a closer look at the story of how Kaleb Lechowski’s creation came to be.
