The Orb of Wisdom

The Orb of Wisdom from Eric Power on Vimeo.

Many years ago, before the Great War between the High Elves and the Rat People, the Kingdom of Lothlimelhey sat in relative peace, nestled amongst the Mountains of Chaos.
Shot in glorious cut paper stop motion!
Before the time of war, wizards and priests of Lothlimelhey consulted with the spirit of Dagor the Wise, forever trapped within the Orb of Wisdom.
Written by Andreas Petersen
Directed and Animated by Eric Power
With Alicia Power as the Narrator
Andreas Petersen as Dagor the Wise (and old priest)
& Eric Power as Rathgar

2016 Stop Motion DEMO REEL

I put together a demo reel showcasing my work in recent years. It's been a while since I've done this and it's kind of cool to be able to see all the various styles edited together in one video! Special shout out to my favorite composer John Dixon for The Inventor proof of concept score I'm using here. It's really awesome to be able to hear this isolated from the sound design of the trailer. So, I suggest watching the animated reel then going back and rewatching with your eyes closed to fully immerse yourself in the sound. Check out his other work here: www.manybirthdays.net Oh and hire me if you need fantastic animation!
