Epic Fantasy Animated Short - Exordium

(Video Link)

Are you tired of all the holiday cheer and happiness that comes with Christmas? Looking to scar your eyeballs with a bit of the old ultraviolence? Well here’s an epic fantasy short that’s sure to please fans of the animated film Heavy Metal and anyone who likes their cartoons full of hardcore realism.

It’s called Exordium, and it uses the rotoscoping technique, made popular by Ralph Bakshi and the folks who made that A-ha video for "Take On Me" that everybody knows and loves. which brings a humanistic feel to the brutal realm in which the story takes place. Exordium was created by a madman named Gorgonaut, a guy whose idea of holiday cheer revolves around heads on pikes and making leather armor out of flying reindeer. (NSFW due to animated violence)

I liked the video, too.. Especcially as i am not very comfortable with this "Santa Clause Event"... Too much "last chrismas...", "Jingle bells", and "Winterwonderlands"...

I completely misinterpreted as showing the futileness of the approaching "gift battlefields"...

At least i checked out the principle of rotoscopy...

Heh we've all become so desensitized that this sort of thing is on Neatorama? I didn't even blink when that dude was sliced in half. I liked the video... dunno what that says about me, or all of us... or maybe just the video. Maybe I just spend too much time over at reddit's WTF'land. We're all in this car together, where on earth are we headed guys?
