Indiana Jones animated short coming Sep. 29

Indiana Jones fans may finally get the chance to get the stench of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull purged from their nostrils. Patrick Schoenmaker, an artist who has worked on Indiana Jones art prints for Lucasfilm in the past, has worked for the last five years to animate his own Indiana Jones adventure. He has finally completed it, and because it is not a Lucasfilm-sanctioned project, Schoenmaker is releasing the film for free on the internet on September 29. Schoenmaker hasn't said how long the short is, but he did say on his blog that it was under 20 minutes.

This image is the Indiana Jones print he created for Lucasfilm in 2011, which he is using as a basis for the film's look and feel. You can find out more about Patrick's work at
