Created in twelve hours for a timed competition, this is a short standalone trailer about Archimedes. I used a mix of stop-motion and CGI, mainly using Blender and After Effects. Thanks to James Olszewski for letting me cut together some of his music in the trailer. Make sure to check out more of his music.
The story of Archimedes is pretty amazing, and I wish I could have brought other elements into the film like the cranes and mirrors as well as the Roman ships, but unfortunately time constraints meant I had to focus on one of his inventions - a sort of catapult used to hurl rocks. I hope you enjoy the film! It's not my best work to date due to how quickly I had to work, but I learned a lot while working on it.
