My friend Sebastien Lasserre just released his 34 minutes shortfilm to the public and an official website showcasing some of the artwork that went into the making of the “short”. (few more minutes and it was a feature ;-) )
Sebastien took a year off from work to dedicate to this project, a shorfilm mixing medieval storyline and 8 bits video game references all animated in Pixels.
My only contribution was moral support as I only discovered the finished shortfilm when it premiered last year in Bayonne.
I should also note that the music and sound design was handled by my good buddy Vincil from Ummo whom I mentionned a while back on this blog.
Grab some drinks and popcorn, sit back and enjoy.
In the year of grace 1351, the entire kingdom is devastated.
