Just something I made for a month-long school project. It was made over the course of a week, with on and off progress being made one slow day at a time, since I had other things on my plate at the time, as well.
Basically, the movie centers around an unnamed "dwarf" (I use quotation marks because the dwarves look more human than dwarven, since I'm a shit artist), whose final days within the dwarven fortress "Koganusan" (dwarven for 'Boatmurdered', google it) are numbered. The meaning of the film, deeper than the jist of it, is for you to decide. This was my first attempt at creating something somewhat abstract, with different interpretations and the likes, and I'm not very satisfied with the end result. That's why I ask of you to please be critical in your comments so that I may improve myself. Don't feel forced to do so, though. A simple rating will suffice. :-)
The film was very much inspired by "Dwarf Fortress", an A+ video game, as well as "Boatmurdered", an online "let's play" of sorts related to the video game at hand. Artistry credits go to both myself and the much more talented folks at the now-defunct Raven software, producers of "Hexen" and "Heretic", from which I shamefully traced most of the drawings in the second half of the film. The wonderful music credits go to Tarn Adams, the creator of Dwarf Fortress, and an all-around excellent composer. Please try to enjoy regardless of the atrocious quality of the visuals.
