Random: College student makes brilliant Zelda-inspired animation and gets an A
Oooooh, I’ve always wanted to say this: Nintendo, hire this man!
Jordan LeBlanc (aka Hxx) is a sophomore in animation (which is sophomore for non-Americans) and made this Breath of the Wild themed short film as part of a project to make a film about it over the course of a semester. The film features a Link-like character and a Zelda-like character fighting over guns in a library, which is extremely dangerous – you’ll hurt the books!
The animation was made according to Hxx’s comments on YouTube and in Maya TwitterWith Music by Jeff Brice and Character Rigs by Christoph Schoch. And of course, Hxx got an A for his work:
Hopefully the result of this amazing short film is a high profile job at a cool game studio and not a cease and desist letter from Nintendo!
You can also visit Hxx’s YouTube channel, which has a number of game-related animations over the years, to see how much his work has improved – including this viral Apex Legends fan short from two years ago:
Congratulations to Hxx on his well-deserved A and we will follow your career with interest from now on.
