Abstract

This thesis showcases the background research and production of assets for an animated short film, Off the Top. This film tells the story of two Viking men who have a physical confrontation, which is resolved by the end of the narrative in a comedic fashion. This project draws elements from Viking history and culture to drive the design of the environment and characters in the story. Additionally, this thesis presents several methods for creating visually interesting props, environments, and characters that leverage procedurally-driven techniques for both modeling and surfacing.
