This film was created for the 2010 Des Moines 48 Hour Film Project, shot on a borrowed FlipCam.

Thomas J. Buxtehude directs a fantasy epic about a dragon who terrorizes an old English town in 1753. After years of committing unspeakable acts against the townsfolk, Luciferous lures an unnamed hero out to battle him to the death.

As part of the 2010 48 Hour Film Project rules, teams were required to use a character named Carl or Carla Ross who must be a plumber, use coins as a prop, and use the line "Who came up with that?" Other requirements included the color bars and tones at the beginning. For some reason we thought adding extra tones would be amusing. Outtakes are here:
