RPG Infiltration of the Media Continues Apace

A graduating member of The Animation Workshop in Denmark has produced a cool little short film that, like "Adventure Time", seems to owe a lot to Dungeons & Dragons.

I liked it, fun video however derivative it might be. Also, baggsies the fleet of narwhals.

Watched this several times yesterday. Pitch perfect.

I love that the first thing Ginger does when he gets the magic staff is a "You Shall Not Pass!" gag.

Oh, that was great. And touching. My heart swelled when they got their rewards.

Make sure to watch to the very end, after the credits... made me extra-chuckle.

That was fun, I hope to see more from him. The animation style is very similar to a few episodes of Samurai 7.

Animation Workshop student shorts previously. Someone sent me this one, and while it's very nice, it would be better if the women in it weren't all bimbos or villains.

This is why you don't get down and nasty in the middle of a forest; someone will walk off with your sword and magic staff.

Aw yes, I loved this, though I do agree with Nomyte re: the treatment of women.

The colors, character design, and expressions really remind me of One Piece, which I wish was actually animated in this style (movie 6 got pretty close!).

Some nice concept art at the official blog.
