Dundee students produce “Concerning Dragons”

Students at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design at Dundee University have produced a homage to J.R.R. Tolkien’s books with their video “Concerning Dragons”.

MSc Animation and Visualisation students worked for 13 weeks on the video, in association with Axis Animation, to produce the beautiful piece of work. The unofficial short is to tie in with the DVD release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Congratulations to those involved: George Baritakis, Kieran Duncan, Lilly Durrant, Steph Flynn, Kirti Geonka, John Harrison, Sheng Li, J.J. McGowan, Fraser Mac, Rebecca Paul and Tom Paxton.
