How far would you go to get the job of your dreams? Adam Levermore really wants the chance to work as designer on the Avengers spin-off television series. He created this ridiculously clever short to act as his resume. Who wouldn’t hire you after such a clever stunt?
As he explained on his website, www.adamlevermore.com, “The stated goal of this short film is to catch the eye of the production designer for the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show, and hopefully be so impressive that hiring me is a no-brainer. I realized, though, that it’s much more than that. The finished piece wound up being so high-quality that it stands alone as a spotlight for my design work. I designed all the art elements of the piece, from the ID badges to the dossiers to the copy of the Daily Bugle to the “Employee of the Month” plaque for Maria Hill. I even drew Nick Fury’s right-side-only drawing of the Avengers. Everything that isn’t part of the building or being worn by the actors was my design work, and I think it really shows what I can do to bring a unified, coherent feel to a fictional world. No matter what the project is, if you’re watching this piece with an eye towards hiring me, I think you’ll come away with a really good idea of the value I bring to the table.”
