Myth is a perilous thing to pursue. It transforms fact into fantasy, and danger into the promise of wealth.

Inheritance is a senior thesis computer animated short film made by Cliff Schonewill.

The goal of this piece is less story oriented and more to demonstrate imagination and skills associated with the job I hope to have as a 3D modeler working on amazing projects in films and games. For this reason, I chose to create a window into a larger story and setting - to leave people wondering more than to create a story that fully completes itself.

Synopsis: After years of searching, a thief named Alurbaz finally finds the secret entrance to the tomb of the legendary Cobalt King. He has followed a forgotten myth about a relic of strange power, the cobalt soul, seeking to claim it as his own.
