Borderlands — Tales from the HQ Animated Series Coming December
Months ago, 2K and Gearbox announced a partnership with the Academy of Art University to create an animated short film set in the Borderlands universe. Since then, the plan has been revised to include the creation of three animated short films.
The series, titled “Borderlands — Tales from the HQ,” is slated to release on YouTube this December. Over 100 students worked on the project, and over the course of eight months, 14 different storyboards were created, of which three were ultimately chosen for animation.
One of the lucky three was “Bride of Frankentrap,” an episode conceived and storyboarded by Leslie Harwood.
You can watch the Bride of Frankentrap animatic, below, which is being used as a blueprint by large teams of animation students to create a fully animated short film.
