Tendril Unveils the Mythology of “Keinon”

Tendril says their new spec project, a 50-second CG tribute to classic anime movies, “was born out of our love for game cinematics and our desire to showcase our strength in character animation.”
 


 
From Tendril: “The hero of our story is Keinon, an abandoned orphan raised by a Ronin (a Samurai without a master) to fight an ancestral curse.

“Centuries ago, Keinon’s ancestor — greedy King Aram — forged a pact with a demon, promising all his blood descendants in return for control over the Empire. Upon reaching a certain age, his descendants begin transforming into demons.

“Keinon’s face and limbs have already turned and it is now a race against time as the only cure to this curse would be to defeat King Aram’s army.”

“Everything in this film is original — from concept, characters, environments to the smallest details of the protagonists’ fashion and choice of weaponry.”
