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.

A great trailer

Wow I have to say this was a great trailer here you have some nice visuals on this might even be nice to see some added subtitles on this just as some extra measure on it all, but overall this was a nice little trailer cant wait for the full version of this.

wooooow, nice work,

The first part reminded me of Made in Abyss, then I thought it had a touch of Avatar with a few other elements. Nice trailer, I can't wait to see the full movie!

A gargantuan, and beautifully green, imaginative world, full with monuments of old and modern tech alike... the style reminds me of Avatar, and some of the imagery of Mortal Engins, main character a bit like that one Disney princess... both sound design and animation's on point, and the script intriguing too. Fast-paced and ferocious all the way though too so not a dull moment here... hopefully the movie has some breathing room, but this was perfect for a trailer. Can't wait to see this!


Oh my this made me smile xD
