Hello, my name is Martin and I’ve always been a fan of three things - Ancient Greece, epic storytelling and learning CG graphics. In this project, I decided to merge all three.

I am creating a CG short film set in the Ancient Greek era... and helping YOU by documenting my workflow and giving you tools that will help you create your own CG projects.




My vision for Heroes of Bronze has several layers.

  • I WANT TO CREATE A SHORT FILM SHOWCASING THE MOST FAMOUS MOMENTS OF THE ANCIENT GREEK HISTORY

  • I DOCUMENT EACH STEP OF THIS PROJECT’S CREATION AND RELEASE TUTORIALS, SHOWING YOU MY WORKFLOW

  • IN EACH VIDEO I TRY TO GIVE THE VIEWERS FUN HISTORICAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE WORLD OF ANCIENT GREECE

Hope you’ll love the project and that it will help you realize your short films!

Tiers
Epheboi
$1 or more per month

Young warriors not yet initiated in the art of battle but training hard to be ready when the time comes. 

Reward:  You'll get high resolution renders of the art created for the Heroes of Bronze project. 

Psiloi
$2 or more per month

A bit of stone throwing action here, a bit of javelin work there, light-armed Psiloi helped the ancient Greek phalanx in any way they could. Often times, it was their harassing of the enemy that actually helped win the battle for the heavier armed warriors. 


Rewards:  You'll get high-resolution renders of Heroes of Bronze artwork along with essential project files for the Youtube tutorials. 

Hypaspist
$5 or more per month

Light-armed warriors, usually servants to more experience and older soldiers, they carried a heavy shield for their master, as well as the master's belongings. If this older warrior fell, it was the role of his Hypaspist to get him off the battlefield, or sometimes take up his arms and continue the fight.


Rewards:  All the benefits from the Tiers above + exclusive Patreon videos + you'll be able to vote in the tutorial Polls 

Hoplite
$10 or more per month

The backbone of the ancient Greek army. Heavily armored warriors carrying a massive round shield called Aspis, heavy bronze cuirass or leather Thorax, eight feet long spear Doru and variety of swords or knives. Together they formed an impenetrable unit called Phalanx - bristling with spears, a formidable wall of bronze.


At the Hoplite Tier, you are the backbone. You make it all possible.


Rewards:  All of the rewards from above + voting in the Polls + exclusive project-created assets from the Heroes of Bronze project

Goals
$67 of $100 per month
I will start a once-a-month livestream where I will deconstruct my artwork, shots for the project, give tips on pre-production and CG production of all sorts and answer your questions.
