Independent Animator Creates Feature Film
Press Release from Archon Defender
Technological advancements in cinematic tools make it possible for an individual or small group of people to create a full length animated feature film rivaling the quality of the big studios, in a similar production time and at a fraction of the cost. Director and Animator David T. Krupicz created Archon Defender in 3 years, working with a minimal budget, using second hand computers in the spare time away from his full time call center job.
Previous works by the director include the four part series of shorts, Rocketmen vs Robots, which were well received at past screenings, including the Renderfest 2003 festival in Toronto, Canada. Archon Defender, which premiered at the Revue Cinema in Toronto on Oct 7, 2009, was recently awarded first place in the category of Animation at the SkyFest 2009 Film and Script Festival in Asheville, NC.
Archon Defender follows the path of a young woman, Colette, as she seeks her way through adversity to redemption, as the world she once knew is torn apart by war and tyranny. Archon Defender is an epic combination of Sci-Fi and Fantasy elements, with a unique and refreshing visual style, which will set a new standard for what can be achieved by solo artists.
The film has been released in its entirety, free to watch on the director’s YouTube channel.
