I've been working on this film since the day the contest was announced up to the VERY last minute, and here it is! I've uploaded it to YouTube as an unlisted video, so it isn't searchable but you can still view it. I did it this way because I wasn't sure if you wanted videos to be public before decisions on winners were made (since the submission forums are private). I hope you all enjoy!
Mist Runneris a short live-action film based on Heroes of Newerth. Arianna is a Mist Runner, an elite Scout of the Legion army. Armed with her sword, powerful longbow and the ability to disappear, Arianna is tasked with the mission of tracking down a dangerous enemy known to the Legion only as the Madman deep within the forests of Caldavar.
I love HoN and with this opportunity I wanted to keep it true to the game with recognizable characters and iconic abilities, as well as explore and expand the lore a little bit, so I hope that's okay.
The film is mostly complete, though one of the 'invis' effects broke during the final export and I didn't have time to fix it, re-export, and upload to make the deadline. There are also a few tweaks here in there that I had to give up on due to time. Despite the broken effect and audio levels here and there I still think it turned out pretty well and I hope you think so as well!
Thank you very much for HoN and for the chance add to the HoN community!
