About this project

[ OATH PROJECT ]

Hello! We are Xygen , a group of blender artists from different countries around the world who have teamed up to create a 12 minute animation. We are using blender 3D, a free, open-source software package and the freestyle rendering utility. This animation is based on a project originally created by Anigo Animation Europe.

This is an on-going project which is currently 30-40 % complete. The larger percentage of 60-70% remaining mostly comprises the rendering phase which is the most important part of the project and the reason for the need of additional funding .

We appeal to you for your support of this project

[ STORY ]

We follow the story of a young girl named Akari, who after witnessing the murder of her father, has vowed an oath to find the killer and avenge his death. During the course of her journey, she meets Anino , an ex soldier who has been sent out with the task of finding a man known only as " The Boss". Rena , The head of security of Blacksign Arms and “The Boss”s personal bodyguard is a highly trained sniper formerly with the US . Special Forces. Akari is destined to interfere with her plans.
