Knight Fever, a short film animated by Christopher Minos, debuts at the Los Angeles Short Film Festival, July 29 at 5.30 pm. It’s a classic medieval story of Dragon versus Knight.
The new season of UK football on Sky Sports and Sky Terrestrial networks has been kicked off with “Start of Season”, a TV advert designed to pick up the emotions felt by football fans everywhere.
The Dragon and Knight, natural enemies, are brought together by their mutual love of watching television when the only TV in the kingdom is in danger.
