The Box Assassin | Animated Short Film Now Available to Watch
The Box Assassin is finally available to watch online! If you're just coming across this short film, it's about a pizza delivery boy's unforgettable night of running into a slick, legendary assassin that defeats his enemies in clever ways you couldn’t imagine. The creator of the film, Jeremy Schaefer created the short film in his senior year at Ringling College of Art & Design and it's nothing short of amazing!
The main tool he used in production was Autodesk Maya. Inside of Maya, he completed the set/prop modeling, rigging, surfacing, layout, animation, and lighting. The characters were all sculpted in Zbrush. The texture work was done in Substance Painter and Photoshop. The film was rendered with Arnold, and compositing was done in Nuke. Everything was edited in Adobe Premiere and lastly, Adobe After Effects was used to create the end credit sequence!
