The Tales of Alethrion proloque "The First Hero" is about Alethrion, whom the land is named after, and a lovely backpacker girl called Amerath. They are the original creators of the map which we see later in The Reward, carried by Vito and Wilhelm. It is the first tale that takes place long before many of the other episodes in the series which we hope to get funded through Kickstarter.
Mathias Winum and Johan Pedersen are our awesome musicians (Bards) for The Reward: Tales of Alethrion! They make the movies really come to life.
Sun Creature Studio was created by Mikkel Mainz Elkjær, Bo Juhl Nielsen and Kenneth Ladekjær after their education at the Animation Workshop. Now we are 7 people in the studio who is Charlotte de la Gournerie, Simon Lee, Thibaud Petitpas and Guillaume Dousse. Sun Creature wants to keep a playful and experimenting animation style, but still with the most interesting look possible. It wants to keep the industry moving forward, and work with talented and good people inside and outside of Denmark. For now it focuses on the series "Tales of Alethrion", based on the universe of the short film The Reward.
