Location spotting in the Brecon Beacons

Night of Fire created a lot of interest with the VFX group so we were approached by them and then made plans to create a short VFX film along side the pre-rendered cinematic. We came up with an idea that would involve intergrating a CG character (the dragon) with a real actor. 

The storyboard we made involved a barbarian type warrior being chased on some mountain by the dragon until he ends up having no choice but to fight.

We found an excellent viking costume that could be made to measure and found a great location up in the Brecon Beacons. We needed a sort of mount that the warrior could take cover behind to get away from the dragon and we think we found some good spots.

Unfortunately this project was cancelled which is unfortunate as it could have been awesome!
