Thanks to Alex Wilkinson for alerting me to this treasure from YouTube: an animated version of the opening sequence of Mortal Engines. It's all the work of Julia Zhuravleva who is currently studying at the Russian State Institute of Cinematography (aka VGIK). I hesitate to call it 'fan art', but I must stress that this was done as a personal project for part of her course: it has no commercial element, and is nothing to do with the long-rumoured Mortal Engines movie... but until there is an official Mortal Engines movie, this will do very nicely. I was startled to see that it's Julia's first attempt at animation. The characters' gestures and Tom's facial expressions are beautifully observed, and the story unfolds clearly and simply without a single line of dialogue. It will leave you wishing there was more! (It's worth watching full screen, or at least on YouTube, where it's slightly bigger).
