CGI 3D Animated Short Film: Night Quest Animated Short Film by Thomas Mantilla at IIM – Digital School. Featured on CGMeetup Gallery

Gwen, a young princess, is locked in a cell and, at nightfall, she takes her courage with both hands and decides to escape. On her way she will brave several obstacles including an ogre and a terrifying monster until she arrives in front of an imposing door…

This film was made at IIM – Digital School, from September 2019 to January 2021, we had to make a short film within our school to validate our two years of master’s. After watching many short films made by other students, we decided that we too wanted to make a project that looked like us and that we love. « Night Quest » was born from that moment on. What little girl never thought she was a princess trying to escape her castle ? What child has never dreamed of confronting different imaginary monsters straight out of his mind ? It is from our childhood memories that we left to make this short film, based on the imagination.
