La Main des Maîtres

La Main des Maîtres (The hand of the masters) takes its graphical direction from the early 20th century’s Art Nouveau and Victorian styles. Beneath the graphics is the society of the working class during the industrial revolution as it relates to class struggle. The major artistic influence on the overall animation style is the painter Alfons Mucha. From this inspiration, everything went to Steampunk.

The short film is the work of three students of the Georges Méliès School (formerly EESA): Vivien Chauvet, Adrien Toupet and Clément Delatre.

It is the work of: Wesly Grefrath and Floris Vos at Soulbase; Arjan van Meerten, Bobby De Groot and Sven Neve at House of Secrets. Music by Jeroen Tel at Maniacs of Noise.

Dragon Age: Sacred Ashes

Dragon Age, is a computer role playing game developed by BioWare. It will be published by Electronic Arts on November 2009.

The cinematic animation should be the work of Blur Studio, even though at the moment I can’t be 100% sure of this. Will update when possible.
