According to local legend, a great monster was slain in battle many centuries ago by a courageous hero. In the present day, however, while most in the small British town of Anghenfil have heard the story of this monster, not many believe it.
One day, that all changes. This is the story of that day - the day the monster returns, the day a new hero emerges, and the day the fate of the town is sealed.
The film is also unique in that it uses a low-cost motion capture system to animate my fully CGI monster. This is the first time performance capture has been used on this scale in an indie feature film, at such a small budget (in the realm of a few thousand £s!).
Think of Gollum, Thanos, or Caesar from Planet of the Apes. And now imagine you can create them in your garage…..
