This was a tough assignment. Having to constantly keep track of the weight and such of the box as well as getting believable motion as the character picks it up was quite the challenge.
We had to create a backstory and personality for the character in order to create a unique performance for the character. I chose to have a character who'se primary emotion was anger. The idea would be that this man would have had a lot of misfortune placed upon him in a short span of time that he eventually snaps, letting his frustrations out on the closest thing he can find.
A note on the animation, since it takes place in such a simplified environment, is that the box is bolted to the ground, and that is why there is that moment where he tears it and is partially off the ground for a little bit before being completely torn off.
