Exclusively using off-the-shelf software solutions such as Lightwave 3D, Imagineer Mocha Pro and Adobe After Effects, they showed the audience of nearly 600 DGA Members and their guests just how much "bang for their budget" they could realistically receive, even with micro-budgets and micro-deadlines!

Here they are folks, both lovely ladies in one package.... Eala Sul Fae and Unseelie Vamp EalaSul-Unseeie Vamp Bundletogether to save you money.

Eala Sul ..... the death ghost wind of the Elves.... with both a dual-aspect soul.... one side light and full of old magic ... the other is the darker side of her soul ... the vampire ... the Unseelie ....

She moves with a step more silent than the air of night .... and leaves just the faintest hint of having been there at all, passing softer than a warm breeze on a moonless night. She is the last of her kind -- pale High Elf from forgotten times.

But she is doomed to wander forever, for her soul has been tainted with the dark blood of the Unseelie. Eternally cursed to bear in her mind's eye the last terrifying moments of those she drains the life from .... in order to sustain her own ... alone with her lighter side..... one in the shadows while the other is in the forefront but never together as one.
