About the Film:
(Please do not judge this film compared to works with non-real-time 3D programs (Maya, Blender, 3DSMax, etc.), as it was made in a real-time (WYSIWYG) 3D program and thus had many limits regarding lighting, polygons, and general render quality that those programs do not have due to their nature.)
A few months ago, I reached my 100th audio submission to Newgrounds and created this rather long piece. Recently, I decided to sit down and try animating the imagery I had for each movement in 3D... after about five days of working long into the night, I finally reached the end of the project.
Do note that the film jumps around a bit to match the cinematic nature of the music as it is "inverse-scoring".
Each movement has its own character or idea to express- the first is the founding of this imaginary kingdom and its heritage of war. The second is a great leader (referred to in the film as "the general" who led the kingdom to glory and taught its people to fight. The third is a calm movement which marks the serene beauty of the land and architecture of the kingdom- it's castles, great galleries, calm seas. Finally, the last movement marks the end of all these things. If you look carefully, you will notice each of the three previous movements sees an end in this movement.
There's an awful lot of imagery and representation in this to go along with the film, so keep an eye out for symbols that appear again.
Animation done in iClone 5; editing in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4.
