Ricky the Robot is the story of UH student Hank West and his quest to create a superstar from nothing but some cardboard boxes, some aluminum foil, and a rumor.


Everything that happened in this video is real. None of it was staged.


This has been one of my biggest projects to date. It was shot over the course of two and a half months and I edited it in my free time over the course of about three months. It was a challenge for me to take five hours of footage, and bring it down to under half an hour, all the while maintaining the storyline and trying to keep it funny.
