Genre: Comedy, adventure, action.
Rating: PG (Pure Genius)*
Runtime: 23 minutes
Written & Directed by: Lord Basse
A beautiful princess is locked up in a far-away castle, and it's up to the Brave Knight In Shining Armour with as much personality as a piece of cardboard to save her. Does that premise sound familiar? I'm sure it does, it's the most classic and cliché fairytale imaginable.
This cinematic is that story. Except it's not. Five failed fairytale heroes set out to save the kidnapped princess, not so much out of care for the princess or a need for a noble quest, but because they want to become famous fairytale heroes. Only one will survive this perilous journey.
ABOUT THE SCENARIO:
This is a comedy, like most of what I do, and it's both a parody of and an homage to classic fairytales with damsels in distress, valiant knights without fear, awe-inspiring castles and lands and fear-striking dragons. If you have enjoyed any of my other humorous scenarios (Gwyndlegard, Jones Blond, Marvin and Rob, The Big Knights etc), you will most likely enjoy this.
