Jack, a procrastinating graduate student, finds the apartment he is house-sitting has turned into a box with no exit or escape. Inside Jack’s box is a smaller box containing another trapped procrastinator named Walter. In order to escape, Jack must finish his thesis. But the price of completion may be the very world he lives in. An existential comedy. (robertdeleskie.com)
We were thrilled to be a part of this short film, and able to demonstrate our vfx supervisor chops on set as we assisted director Robert Deleskie in designing ways of telling the challenging story of poor, lazy Jack. Lots of fun figuring it out during production, and then creating the bizarre universe of boxes within boxes, with ever shrinking occupants, during the editing process.
