Gearbox in collaboration with The Academy of Art University has released its series of Borderlands animated short films.
These student-produced animated films were announced in March, Last Year. These students were not only assigned with the production, but were also required to come up with a script with the winning team to be offered an internship opportunity at 2K Studios.
The three animated movies dubbed as: Borderlands – Tales from the HQ: Loose Cannon Claptrap, Borderlands – Tales from the HQ: The Darkest Day, and Borderlands – Tales from the HQ: The Bride of Frankentrap have gone live on Machinima’s YouTube Channel.

In addition to these animated movies, a behind-the-scenes video – The Art of the Game – has also been released, which showcases how these students came across making producing these short movies.
It also discusses growth of the gaming industry and its artistic culture. It also features some of the most creative minds in the gaming industry like Sid Meier, Randy Pitchford, and Jake Solomon.
