Random: A University student teaches Zelda-inspired animation and receives an A ...

Oooooh, I''ve always wanted to say this: Nintendo, hire this man!

Jordan LeBlanc (AKA Hxx) is an animation student in his sophomore year (which, for non-Americans, is the second year of university) and made this Breath of the Wild-themed short as part of a project to develop a film over one semester. The film depicts a Link-like character and a Zelda-like character fighting over weapons in a library, which is extremely dangerous!

According to Hxx''s comments on YouTube and Twitter, the animation was fabricated in Maya, with music by Jeff Brice and character rigs by Christoph Schoch. And, of course, Hxx got an A for his work:

The outcome of this fantastic short film is a high-profile stint at a cool gaming studio, and not a cease and deist from Nintendo!

You may also check out Hxx''s YouTube channel, which has held a slew of game-related animations in the years, to see how much he has improved, including this viral Apex Legends fan short from two years ago:

Congratulations to Hxx on the well-deserved A, and from now on, we''ll be seeing your career with interest.
