As his kingdom is being threatened by the Turks, young prince Vlad Tepes must become a monster feared by his own people in order to obtain the power needed to protect his family and his kingdom.
Swarms of Turkish soldiers, a castle under siege, and a number of digital sword replacements were produced at Framestore to enhance the vision of 15th century Transylvania in this dark origin story. Completed sequences include Vlad Tepes single-handedly taking down a Turkish army after first realizing his new power, along with his final battle against the evil Sultan Mehmed.
