The brief for this university project was to create a film trailer for television, in the event that the book Gormenghast by Mervyn Peake was made into a feature film.

There was a relatively short timescale for the project, so it was decided that there would be no live action filming, as that would be too time-consuming. Instead the graphics are all made digitally and are mostly static with the camera panning through a fictional medieval city in 3d space. Addition layered effects were added over the top to enhance the dark atmosphere as portrayed in the book.
