A dutiful damsel agrees to marry a handsome prince, only to find the royal family has recruited her as a sacrifice to repay an ancient debt. Thrown into a cave with a fire-breathing dragon, she must rely on her wits and will to survive.

We completed some of the most complex work OOU has ever done including:

  • Creature work of a dragon with full skeleton and muscle system, animated across 166 shots.
  • Huge scale cave environments and DMP set extensions.
  • A lot of dragon fire, napalm, a neck brewing fire effect, dust and destruction, melting and cracking ice, and of course a few splatterings of blood.
  • Assets included a dragon, digi-doubles, burnt swallows, armour, swords, crystals and many more props and objects.
