"The Thief" is a short film that Chris Wood has been working on all year long. Sure, it's yet another Skyri fan film, but this one looks notable for the fact he's spent some money on it, and that it looks very professional.

The actors? They're actually acting, not grunting while plastic swords clash. The costumes? They're beautiful, a cut above the normal fare you see slapped together for these kind of things. There's even a proper, original story here, not just an excuse for a computer-assisted battle sequence.

You can catch a trailer above, while there's more info - and some shots showing off the fancy costumes - at the site below.
