Don Haworth - Dragon
The story of St. George and the Dragon, told from the dragon's point of view. Exists in two versions, 60m and 105m. Very good use of sound effects.
"The story I am to tell is about the contention between ourselves & mankind on the face of the earth and of the contention within the hearts of many creatures stirred by that conflict. It is, above all, about my brother, Amalric, a prince of dragons. He whose valour, love, and honour in the end brought upon himself & upon mankind, & upon our nation, a fate unthinkable in the days when it yet lay before us, inevitable now when after many years we look back. I will speak first of those happy early days and of our noble and beloved Uncle George, commander of the army, former dragon errant, and teller of stories to the young."
A touch portentous at times, but worth suspending disbelief for it for a while.
