Grock and the Dark Czar - Revisited

As the title says, I have revisited Grock's last moments, showing them from a single point of view this time, as some people had trouble with the multiple views of the first version.

Again, this animation was made using iClone 3.2, filmed using one camera showing the entire animation sequence.

Roll on Pay Day... :)

Grock And The Dark Czar

While waiting for iClone 4 to be released, and making use of the iClone Fantasy World Evil Force pack (thanks to my small win in the Tribute Contest), I have put together this short piece.

I wanted to do a fantasy fight sequence, but do it in ONE take. This I have done, but to keep it interesting, I used four different camera angles. And once in post production, I combined them in a slightly unusual manner (for me) that shows pretty much everything that's going on.

It might take several viewings by the audience to catch all the details (I could be wrong), but I think it would be worth your while.

The story (what there is of it, and most of that is in my head) is based on a fantasy/sci-fi world I created years ago call Marisia. What you see here is just 90 seconds of about 5000 years of history.


(I seriously suggest you watch this in High Def, with your headphones/speakers turned up nice and comfortably loud to enjoy it fully.)
