John sent me a link to ericpowerup.net a few weeks ago with the IM “Do you know this guy?” And I do! Or I did anyway. We were both animators on the Richard Linklater film Waking Life back in 1999-2000. I amused myself by watching some of his awesome little video-game-themed animations.

Then I saw this Star Wars video on Wil Wheaton’s blog and was charmed by the song and animation. And pleasantly surprised when I saw Eric’s name at the end! I embedded the video here, but I recommend checking out Eric’s site for more charming geekery. And if you dig the lovely song by Jeremy Messersmith you can name your price for it here!
