Here’s a film I made for the latest CGSociety challenge…the theme was to adapt an ancient myth to steampunk stylings. I chose the myth about the fountain of youth for my topic.

Here’s some exceedingly lovely student CGI animation that also manages to tell a great little story. I’m reminded of Neil Gaiman’s story “Other People” from his excellent collection Fragile Things (to say more would be a spoiler!).

I’ve also included the Making-of video.. Pretty impressive short animation though.
