Box Boy

Role: Fx Animator, Designer, Compositor

Sometimes our inner child can become a touchstone for wonder and adventure.

 

Box boy is a hybrid film following the journey of a toy maker struggling to find inspiration in his work. I had the opportunity to help design and animate the 2D fx sequences, my first experience on a 3D project.

 

With the art direction of Adrian Ferma, I began testing ways the fx could look and move as they interacted with the 3D world. To ground the more fantastical elements of the story, the fx needed to be adapt to changes of setting while staying cohesive overall.
