I made this for an editing class I was taking in college. Actually ended up winning the 'best editing' award, which I couldn't accept in person cuz off on another glamorous movie shoot.. I was actually working at my medium wage job. But I did get the night off when they premiered all the short films at the Aladdin. It was a trip seeing something I made on a big screen.
This was for a compositing class in college. I did things old school for this. I set up a green bed sheet and shot in front of that for my plates. Built and rigged the dragon models in Max. And used a plugin called Illustrate to get that toon shaded effect on the dragons.
