FULL PROJECT DETAILS

THE GOAL

The goal of this project is to create an amazing pilot and pitch for an animated series called The Young Leif Saga.

Armada has been making great strides on pushing this IP forward. We have the story and our partners at Artineers can help us get to the look. We are requesting the financial backing to bring this story to life.

We will produce a 9-minute animated short called “Not Alone” that will introduce the main characters, the world they live in, and give the viewers a taste of this adventure-packed series.

This pilot episode will allow us to develop a work-flow and pipeline within The Unreal Engine to be used for the series. We plan to use Engine as the main hub of production: Layout, Rigging, Animation, and Rendering.
