Ta-dah! This is the latest feature I'm working at. It's almost 10 times more complicated than Friend Of Mine: more characters, more places, and better animation. THE UGLY DINO tells the same story of the Ugly Duckling, but it's set in the Jurassic age. One rainy night, a small T-Rex egg rolls away from his nest and accidentally lands in the nest of a female Pteranodon called Chelsea. Once the egg hatchs up, Chelsea and her nestlings are astonished wondering what that small T-rex was doing there. Inevitably, Chelsea just can't help loving that cute cub, and decides to parent him. But every other dinosaur is scared by the small T-rex, who starts feeling predator instincts. Things get worse when the cub meets Arnold, a huge Tirannosaurus who begins to hunt him down, forcing the poor dinosaur to leave the valley. Will the real cub's mother and Chelsea be able to save the day before it's too late?
THE UGLY DINO will be out next October, and I would like it to partecipate in famous animation contests like AniBOOM and CORTOONS. In the meantime, have a look at this wallpaper!
