Warialasky, the Utah county filmmaking trio that has done live-action versions of the "GoldenEye" video game and the fake "trailer" for "Tetris: The Movie," has produced its longest and most ambitious movie yet — and darned if it doesn't look pretty awesome.

The three — brothers Landon and Casen Sperry, and their friend Mike Brown — have made a 19-minute fan film based on the popular epic video game "Skyrim."

The film, "Skyrim: Into the Void," follows Dovahkiin, a dragon-born hero living with a curse after battling a vampire. He wanders the countryside, until he his captured by the Dark Brotherhood, who want him to save one of their own from the nasty Necromancers. In exchange, they offer him a cure for his vampirism.

The short film includes some impressive special effects, some cool fight scenes, and gorgeous cinematography. (Read this post, from the Los Angeles Times' "Hero Worship" blog, about how the movie was made.)

The short does leave one important question: When is some smart Hollywood producer going to hire these guys to make a real action movie?
