Inspiration: The Tales from Dunwall

These short animations were released as prequels to the game Dishonored (2012), in order to give people some insight into the kind of world Dishonored was set in. I think they're beautifully animated, and I love how the small amounts of colour used (blue for whale oil, red for blood) really stick out against the black and white background.

Something else I find interesting, was the decision to have ChloĆ« Grace Moretz, who voices 10 year old Emily Kaldwin in the game, narrate the animations. The idea of a child telling these somewhat morbid stories, as though they are typical of a child's bedtime story, makes the animations even more eerie.
