Loser pays, Winner stays

Writer/Director/Producer: Jerry Fuchs.

This animated short is a tribute to all the long hours I spent in the bowling alleys and arcades growing up. I have always had a fondness for Knights vs. Dragons. So, loving to draw dragons and goofy knights, I thought that it would be great to animate them fighting it out like the Road-runner and Coyote. I also love old arcade games and the skill it took to create characters out of the square pixels.
