This was an early and unfinished version of the opening scene of a project my friends and I were working on... a short CG film named Dragonslayer. Unfortunately, that project has been abandoned by the team. I rather liked the opening scene and it was heading in the right direction. I may resurrect this project one day (perhaps on a smaller scale) and complete it.
This animation test was done in 3ds Max. I did modeling, texturing, animation and video editing for this piece.
