DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHY – MARTIN KLEKNER
I started as a film student in 2008, but soon found my true calling in 3D. Since then, I’ve worked as a VFX freelancer, director of cinematics for the AAA game Kingdom Come Deliverance, and now, I’m making my own animated project Heroes of Bronze. A CG filmmaker from Prague, Czech Republic, focusing on recreating ancient history using digital animation
Heroes of Bronze is my one-man project and was born out of my love for ancient Greece and the period of Greco-Persian wars in particular. I wanted to bring these events to life, in a historically correct yet engaging manner, with a story revolving around a little boy, growing up in the shadow of his father’s heroic exploits. It took me 4 years to make, working in my spare time.
