Ozymandias is up!

In a post-apocalyptic future, two young boys are inspired to dig for treasure in the desert. They find a lot more than they bargained for...

There's a bit of annoying light flicker and camera shake, and the aspect ratio is completely wrong, but overall I'm glad with how this turned out.

This is my practical coursework for my A2 Film Studies course. The brief was that we had to make a 3 to 5 minute short film, but it could be any genre. I actually started off doing a short about air pollution, but that didn't work, and neither did my next film diea that was going to be about  shadows and stuff, but I'm glad I ended up making this. I think my teachers were all pleased that I did a stop-motion, since it's vastly different to what other students were doing.

The music (Thunder Dreams, Swimmey Texture, Space Explorers and Impact Allegretto) is all by the amazing Kevin Macleod, and you can see his website here:
