Roommate Wanted - Dead or Alive is our graduation film from The Animation Workshop, located in Viborg, Denmark.

The short film is a mixed media project with hand built miniature sets and integrated 3D characters and assets.
We were 9 students on the film, 4 CG artists and 5 animators and we worked on the project for around 10 months.

Summary of the film:
When a struggling medical student, Adam, places an advert online for a “Roommate Wanted; Dead or Alive” in a desperate attempt to save money, he gets way more than he bargained for when the post is taken a little too literally by the only applicant, Zack. This odd couple has to find a way to overcome their obvious problems and accept each other’s awkward mannerisms to be able to share their living space. But unfortunately this proves difficult for Adam, because his new roommate happens to be… a zombie!
