White Ghost Shivers, "Santa's Sack"

watch
Mr. Claus has a special toy just for you.

If you're not listening closely, "Santa's Sack" by White Ghost Shivers sounds like another family-friendly Christmas song. Listen closer, and you realize the lyrics are slightly more, er, adult-oriented. Eric Power's mixed media animation brings the suggestive lyrical content to the forefront. Because Santa only comes once a year......read more

More paper animation niceness from Eric Power.

We've made no secret that we're big fans of Eric Power's paper animations around here.

Another out of this world Eric Power animation.

Eric Power's output of amazing, lo-fi animated videos runs so deep it would take us months to post every one. We might anyway. In this one, Utah indie rockers Fictionist gave Power free reign to do whatever he wanted with their song "Blue Eyed Universe." With full creative control (not to mention skills and imagination for days), the Austin, TX-based animation guru ventured deep into outer space......read more

Another animation win from Eric Power

That includes CD replication (Earthology developed the first 100% postconsumer recycled CD packaging in the U.S.), t-shirt printing......read more
