Watch: Terrific Hit Man CG Animated Short Film 'The Box Assassin'
"This guy is nothing but a killing machine!" Who is he?! Known only as "The Box Assassin", he shows up in boxes of all kinds to take out his target. The Box Assassin is a terrific short 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 short is made by animation filmmaker Jeremy Schaefer, who directed this as his final thesis project studying animation at the Ringling College of Art & Design in Florida. Schaefer is a self-described "former intern at Walt Disney Animation Studios" who will definitely land a gig now. Featuring the voices of Jonathan Myles, Adin Rudd, and Lou Lambert. There's some clear Into the Spider-Verse inspiration in style and tone, but overall this is just a fun, clever hit man action scene with sleek animation.
Thanks to Jeremy on Twitter for the tip on this being available to watch.
