In his own words,
This is a short I made for Riot Games. It started as a test to see how “mature” 2d animation can feel. So I went crazy hack a slash. The entire piece, boards, anim, 3d, bg’s, to final comp, was done by me. I guess you could say this is the directors cut. The Riot released version is missing the music score done by Dan Negovan. Also, some less censored “slashing” in this one.
