"Why does the exhausted warrior willingly fight the wild NiteBeast which mortal men flee from?"

This is my submission for the animation tournament NATA 2014 Open Round. We had 3 weeks to do it, but I had prior arrangements which left me with 3 days to make the deadline. The 3 day version that respected the deadline can be found at this link:
(My buddy and I were wrapping up a huge project that we invested nearly 2 years in! Our game "Fearless Fantasy" is now released on Steam and we're working hard to bring it to mobile/touch screen.)

The final version includes 2 extra days (5 total)

I have not animated like this in a long time! Didn't think I would perform well and I am surprised with the outcome, I thank God for all He has blessed me with and give all the Glory to Him.

I absolutely recommend the voice actors in here. SirUndead is amazing and he was even on "hotline status" since I started production with 3 days left; he understood that I may need him like a fire fighter. And Piper was an outstanding team member as well. She gave great feedback; the way her last line is said was not my idea!

It really has been a long time since you've animated, outside of FearlessFantasy cutscenes, that is. Speaking of that game, it's good to see that same style here as well. That guy looks vaguely a younger Vonn or a Leon/Vonn mash-up. I dunno—the headband is giving me that vibe! Man, I miss playing as Vonn and spamming Lion Howl. I'll need to get that game sometime soon!

The nameless hero certainly has a strong motivation behind his mission. I watched a few of the other open round entries, but this one definitely contains the best reason for the protagonist's motivation. I was worried he wasn't going to make it out of that place with how much emphasis was put on his staggering. Glad he made it!

Good luck in NATA. I'll be hoping and praying that you rock this tournament all the way to the top!
