Slicer Pizza is a graduation film I worked on during my final year at AIE. I pitched the idea and it was chosen as one of the few film ideas that will be made during the final semester. Thus, I was tasked with directing the film to completion.
The main idea of the film is to take a mundane, everyday life situation and throw in something so extraordinary in there but play it off like it is such a normal thing for the characters in the film.
In total there are 33 shots in this film. I animated 26 of them in 2 months. Aside from that, I also modeled and textured the main character, the motorcycle, and the slug. I also rigged the slug character only.
I am really proud of my team for being able to finish all 33 shots of the animatic as closely as possible without having to cut any of them off, which is usually expected to happen student projects.
