Enter the 'Green' Dragon.

We started keeping the project in the back of minds. Later that year Dan attended 'Monster Mash Exhibition 2008, An exhibition of artwork from the creative talents of the UK creature FX industry". He took a selection of his 2000AD related portfolio pieces, which attracted the attention of CGI artist, Stephen Green.

They discussed 2000AD and other projects, Steve showed Dan his breathtaking showreel, and Dan mentioned the Minty project in passing. Steve was interested and offered to join the cause. It would be a good piece for his showreel, using chroma key technology and interacting CGI with live action. Plus it would be fun bringing Dredd's world to life, in the comic style.

No sooner had Dan told me the good news, than Steve started modeling a KICK-ASS Lawmaster motorcycle! We started discussing our plans and with every suggestion made, Steve began to expand the story telling possibilities, inspiring Dan to produce new ideas to work with the CGI world. The standard was totally professional and I was feeling a little inadequate with my half finished Mini DV project.
