Austin Chronicle love

I was recently visited by the Austin Chronicle to talk Path of Blood and my career as an independent animator.  It was a great experience and I was shocked to see that the story ended up making the cover! Needless to say I am over the moon.  It feels great to get local love from the good folks at the Chronicle in this beautiful city of Austin Texas.

jeremy messersmith - Monday, You're Not So Bad

jeremy messersmith - Monday, You're Not So Bad from Eric Power on Vimeo.

Jeremy approached me with this really neat idea for a video back in fall of 2016.  He let me run wild with it and the result is this colorful romp through the end of days, which happens to fall on a Monday.
I worked on this video in November of 2016.  The events of the world inspired much of it.

The song is off Jeremy's new album, Late Stage Capitalism
It is just one of many amazing songs, so I urge you to head over to his site and dive in.

All the NEWS!

Greetings! I wanted to give a bit of an update into the goings on around the studio. The (first) BIG NEWS IS: I am in production on Attack of the Demons! It is a feature length animated horror film I have been trying to get funded for several years. We were finally about to dive into it in earnest in December of 2017, and I have been working on it ever since. The hope is to have it complete this fall. Our budget is crazy low, but the heart is there. It's going to be very freakin' cool. Get excited. The best way to follow the progress of the film is via my INSTAGRAM.  
The second bit of super big news is: Path of Blood is about to be officially released on Blu Ray!  YEAH!   You can purchase the film on amazon HERE.  
I have waited a long time to be able to say that to you.  It feels good to let it out!
I hope you enjoy the labor of love that was Path of Blood.  I learned so much during the making of it.  All of the trials and tribulations pushed me to be a better animator and a better filmmaker in general.  All that knowledge is now being put to the test on Attack of the Demons, my far more ambitious follow up.  I hope you join me for the ride.
More info coming soon!

The following snippets of video were recorded on VHS in October of 1994 from Barrington Colorado's KTU-TV late night broadcast. The tapes we found offer a glimpse into life leading up to events on October 31st. We will be posting as more footage is unearthed.
