‘Exordium': A Retro-Style Swords and Sorcery Animated Film


Do you have a jones for wizards, sword fighting, and cosmic visions?

This project is rotoscoped animation in the style of Ralph Bakshi’s The Lord of the Rings and Fire & Ice (though certainly a bit of Heavy Metal and He-Man made its way in, too). The live action portion of the process began filming a year ago, to the day, of this submission. The film stars Jon Tomlinson, and was co-directed by Josh Jones. It was written, co-directed, drawn by hand in Photoshop, and animated in Premiere, by Morgan Galen King. The music featured is by the incredible bands Strand of Oaks and Ice Dragon, with additional music by Jonn Ollsin of The Family Band.

    Beautiful example of Existentialism. The mask echoes Joseph Campbell with a touch of Ozymandias. I loved it!
