Description:


    In the distant future of a galaxy very unlike our own, an otherworldly janitor named Sam begins his duties at the cargo distribution center of WGA-MinoraBiocybernetics. In the midst of cleaning up debris and longing for a life other than his own, Sam is suddenly presented with an unsupervised cargo plane, a disk containing all the knowledge of a cargo pilot, and the opportunity for the misadventure of a lifetime. “Sam” is a student production. The project features animation done in Maya, effects in Houdini, textures in Photoshop, and com-positing done in Shake and Premiere.
