Bringing together one hundred people from Texas during the Summer of 2005, 'From the Flames Productions' has produced a 6:31 minute concept film based on the tale of Beowulf designed as an aid in pitching to either private investors or studio executives in the hopes of gaining financing for a feature film version.
