After several years animating short films and music videos,Eric Power is set to tackle the silver screen with an animated feature film!
I am looking to raise funds for the production of my first feature length animated film. The film is tentatively entitled 'Path of Blood' and will be a fleshed out version of my short film of the same name. Whereas the short film was mostly silent, the feature film will delve deeply into a large cast of interesting individuals each with their own motivation for walking the path of blood. I am extremely proud of the story I have created, there are tons of surprises in store and plenty of engaging and bloody action.
The film will also push my cut paper animation to new heights. The level of detail the finished film will showcase is going to be staggering. Everything you've seen of my cut paper work so far has only been a precursor to what I feel is possible within the medium and I am very excited to put my skills to the test.
Check out the original short film here:
How will the money be spent:
The funds received from your donation are crucial to the creation of this film. After working as an animator for several years I have grown accustomed to getting the most out of a small budget. As an example, 1 dollar can buy 4 sheets of cardstock paper which can be transformed into a landscape, tree, main character, a squad of ninjas, etc... The money will be delegated to the following causes:
- supplies for the film (paper, glue, scissors, blades, etc)
- studio supplies/hardware (camera lens, hard drive for backup, storage)
- sound engineering
- voice actors
- original musical score
- promotions/festival entries
If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask me.
