Author Comments

Raised in a monastic order, plucky Maeve spends her time seeking ancient relics with her robot Mochi, but she finds herself teaming up with an archaeologist and a boy with strange powers to stop Esluna's tyrannical queen from activating a powerful and ancient technology that threatens to destroy their world.

This animated feature film was made over the course of nine months. The entire pre-production and production was done by a sole artist, Denver Jackson, working overtime with storyboards, animatics, background paintings, animation, compositing, editing and directing. During the post-production process, Denver was animating and painting backgrounds all while finding what little time he had to direct voice actors, sound and music.

Nicely done!

How did this not get daily first? Goddamn... Animation-wise it's top notch. I'd love to watch this.

I do agree with Lyaksandra's review though. You can get a few pointers for this specific kind of cuts. Barring that, terrific work!
