Jeremy Messersmith’s Tatooine by Eric Power

David Knight - 20th Oct 2010

After excellent work for The Lovely Sparrows, Fictionist and other lowish-fi animations, Eric Power has a viral smash on his hands with his latest video for Jeremy Messersmith, due to the fact that he's compressed the entire original Star Wars trilogy into about two and a half minutes of 2D paper animation.

After excellent work for <a href="http://www.promonews.tv/2010/04/06/the-lovely-sparrows%E2%80%99-take-care-by-eric-power/" target="_blank">The Lovely Sparrows</a>, Fictionist and other lowish-fi animations, Eric Power has a viral smash on his hands with his latest video for Jeremy Messersmith, due to the fact that he's compressed the entire original Star Wars trilogy into about two and a half minutes of 2D paper animation. Which saves you from having to sit through <em>Jedi</em> again. But, to be honest, this is achieved with such loving care, it will probably make you love the Wars even more. If that's possible. <strong><em>Eric Power on making the video for Jeremy Messersmith's Tatooine</em></strong> "I first came across Jeremy Messersmith's music early this spring when he hit me up to direct a video for his song Organ Donor. I noticed the track Tatooine up on his page and knew I would have to do something for that in the future. I approached him with the paper cut out idea and he said 'Do It!'. "Jeremy and I are both big fans of the original Star Wars trilogy, so it was a great pleasure to be able to jump back into my childhood for a while and craft some fun little cutouts, which of course I promptly zoomed around the room making laser sounds. One of the highlights for me was blowing up the Death Star.<br/><br/>"I created all the cutouts myself and it took me about a month and a half to finish the whole thing. I found it funny when a week before I wrapped production, George Lucas announced his plans to re-release his films in 3D, seeing as how my version is pretty much as 2-D as it comes."
