Kieran Duncan’s “Papercraft” Hobbit Short Is Quite Beautiful.

Kieran Duncan’s animated short “Concerning Dragons” is not only beautiful but the papercraft style used in it leaves the viewer desperately wanting to see further Tolkien history (though the Dragons coming from eagles is solely an idea from the film makers) presented in such a fashion.

Kieran directed this for an animation class project which is why it is merely 30 seconds long but looking at the comments on the Vimeo page it seems that there are more than a few people that would like to also see another short in the future. Maybe Peter Jackson can have a hand in that?

A big thanks to Lauren Davis from io9 for the heads up on the short!
