|Sucker Punch – Animated Short: Dragon
Presenting animated shorts inspired by Zack Snyder’s new film, Sucker Punch. Director Zack Snyder and animator Ben Hibon collaborated with Comflix Studios to further explore the fantasy worlds in the film. The animated shorts provide a distinct glimpse into those surreal places, allowing people to experience the worlds in a very unique way. “It made sense to me to not only approach the worlds from anoriginal direction in terms of story and focus,” says Snyder, “but also to really push the visual style in a different direction as well. Having seen his contribution to the latest Harry Potter film and looking at some of his other recent work, Ben’s talent was obvious and his aesthetic felt like aperfect fit. His work is graphic and visually arresting.” Hibon relished an opportunity to expand upon Snyder’s unique vision. “Zack is one of the most exciting and original directors working in Hollywood today. Sucker Punch is nothing short of pure visual madness.” DRAGON: In Sucker Punch, the girls drop into a castle courtyard and find themselves in the middle of a chaotic battle between a hoard of gruesome Orcs and an army of Black Knights. The original cause of the massive conflict is hopelessly lost amidst the death and destruction. “Dragon” is a tale of religious persecution exploring the origin of this conflict. Who is the righteous and who is the heathen?
