Borderlands 2 Shorts - Tales from the HQ

Back in the fall, 2K Games took a project, the Borderlands Cooperative, to the Academy of Art University where they not only had students pitch stories and their storyboards but then continue on to produce the three winning stories into shorts. Through the process of creating the short films, a documentary was made! It took awhile but the documentary and the three shorts were finally premiered back on Thursday, May 15th and now publicly on Youtube on http://www.youtube.com/user/machinima. Unfortunately the documentary primarily focuses on the story artists and the animators, leaving out all the rest of production so I was not in it. I had the privileged of working on the shorts as a texture artist. I was going to light a few shots but unfortunately whenever I went to ask for shots, nothing was ready yet so I decided to move on to other projects. Congratulations to all my other friends who have worked on this and it was extremely exciting to see my name out there and public. Apparently the livestream when the documentary and shorts premiered capped out at over four thousand viewers at a single time.
