Comedy short about a fame-seeking knight is epic

It has all the ingredients to be a classic fairy tale - a knight, fire-breathing dragons, princess in distress, a trusty steed - but, as it turns out, new short '850 metres' from director Joeri Christiaen is anything but. Produced by Thuristar and Lunanime, this is a refreshing, not to mention incredibly funny, take on the well-known 'rescue the princess' story.

At just under 15 minutes long, the short has been in development for a while now, with the teaser first released back in 2010. But the wait was totally worth it, with the team clearly putting in a huge amount of time, effort and precision to this after-hours project.

We won't spoil the suprise for you, but make sure you watch the short all the way to the end to see the brilliant and unexpected twist!
