Beware of the Guard

This section contains designs and development work from “Beware of the Guard”, my 2011 graduate film.

Hero and Guard interacting in the only way they know how

For my short film I wanted to create a conflict between two characters, inspired by the classic Hanna Barbera and Warner brothers shorts . I was also interested in using a fantasy medieval setting for my film, giving it that old fable feel.

This is a short trailer I made for my film that is found on the DvD, it proved successful during the degree show, allowing viewers to quickly get a taste of what the film is about.

As part of my hand for college in we had to show the development process of the film, so “The art of Beware of the Guard” book was made.
