This is a Dream more than a Project, it's a dream coming true to me and to all Egyptians.
It all began with a sketch just like every new creation. The idea was to create a really good story that would make a really good animation movie, not just the first Egyptian 3D animation, but a movie that might get awarded or even get an Oscar.
I hope one day we really achieve this. Please, enjoy!

Making Of Gamry
Both the character "Gamry" and the locations are made out of different types of papers to create
3D paper maquettes rather than 3D modeling. Then photographed using a Canon EOS 600D,
with a proper light set up using tiny colord LED lights. Retouches made using Adobe Photoshop CS6.
It took me a while really to make the head look kinda rounded.
Tough challenge... simple solution!
One of the challenges i faced while making the passage below, was how to make this passage look long enough, while it's really not!
From one point of view using the right perspective and a little bit of distortion, i made it happen. See poster no.3.
Holding a lit matchstick, looking shocked and staring at the unknown.
Standing at the main entrance of the castle.
Walking into a passage full of famous stolen paintings hanging on the wall.
(Tiny colored LED lights)
Gamry... who got sucked into Picaso's stolen painting, cutting through the wall to it's soul.
The castle, most of it is under the ground while only a small part is visible to everyone.
