Skyrim-inspired short film The Thief needs your coin

Atmospheric video teaser a glimpse of what may be.

Will you help fund The Thief, a short film inspired by The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim?

British enthusiast Chris Woods needs $1100 to fund his project. So far, he's got $431. He's using the crowd-funding site indiegogo to raise the amount, and not Kickstarter.

The Thief spins a tale of a peace treaty gone "awry", and a plot to pinch the Draconian Madstone. This all revolves around the ever-entertaining Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood.

An atmospheric teaser trailer for The Thief lurks below.
