Hello and welcome to the first post on this brand new site. Here, you’ll be able to find the latest news on the Heroes of Bronze project, as well as some basic info, tutorial links and some ways to support the project, if you like it.
My name is Martin Klekner and for last several years I worked on different historical projects. Most importantly, I had the privilege to be the Cinematic Director at the game Kingdom Come: Deliverance. There, I gained a lot of experience in the CG field and decided that I want to create a project of my own.
I've always been a fan of three things - Ancient Greece, epic storytelling and learning CG graphics. In this project, I decided to merge all three. Creating my own CG short film project from the Ancient Greek era... and helping YOU by documenting my workflow and giving you tools that will help you create your own CG projects.
My vision for Heroes of Bronze has several layers.
First,I want to create a short film showcasing the most famous moments of the Ancient Greek history. Thermopylae, Marathon, Salamis, the classical Athenian architecture as well as the majestic trireme battles.
Second, I plan to document each step of this project’s creation and regularly release tutorials, showing you my workflow and helping you create your own project!
Third, I plan to educate the viewers in a fun form about the world of Greek hoplites, Persian satraps, Mediterranean maritime trade, colonization, slavery, Spartan military prowess, city states, early democracy and much more. This project is situated at around the year 480 BC.
I’m so excited to get this project started and help you along the way! So… let’s get to it :-)
