Azureus Rising is the proof-of-concept for an all new feature film trilogy. Azureus is the story of a young man who after escaping death and enduring a life changing journey - matures into a heroic freedom fighter. Azureus Rising is an epic tale of self discovery, obligation and love against all odds.

Who cares about all that, the short is just gorgeous to watch, enjoy!!

:agree:

great work! I love the scenes of the guy falling between the buildings; when he plays with that little ball that explodes with light, and the slow mo parts when he lands or jumps, etc.

:agree:

And since its a proof-of-concept its ok to go that way. Very intresting indeed. Realy nice concept and look/feel. Loved it.

Technically it's outstanding, scriptwise lacks a lot of strength. I get the part of being a proof-of-concept, but the story looks like a commercial anime-like Halo tribute, or Ultravioletesque.

Am I too critic? well, I'm jealous :P.

I saw that via Twitter yesterday. It's pretty nice but I was trying to figure out what software was used to make it. The "making of" on the website is not yet complete.

I would think predominantly Maya as this is the software of choice for David Weinstein. Could be wrong though....

It wants to be Ghost in the Shell or something and doesn't quite get there.

The designs, while great examples of 3d modeling are also very generic. I don't see a purpose for the shapes other than they "look cool". The scorpion is too derivative of Ghost's spider tanks. Ah well, maybe its because we've soon too much of this kind of thing before. Should have had Vitaly Bulgarov design something.

Still, a great effort all around and to be respected as various 3D skills, even if originality is lacking. Which is really surprising since Black Sun is highly respected concept art company.
