Exordium

Synopsis: Rotoscope animated by hand, this gritty, violent, fantasy short follows a group of warriors as they face an immortal foe at the gates of a long since destroyed fortress. At stake in the battle are the very secrets of the universe. Like a mix of CONAN THE BARBARIAN and 2001, this fantasy short is as philosophical as it is violent.

EXORDIUM:

Gatekeeper!

We have traveled too far and lost too many to turn back!

Surrender your blade!

That will never happen, Son of Man.

My people starve! We wage an endless war!

I must have it! It is our only hope!

Then abandon hope and return.

The Bloom is beyond the grasp of Men.

It is only sorrow.

[Gatekeeper] O, Son of Man...

It means nothing.

Why do nothing?

Men live and die, empires rise and fall

and you hold sway over the very night itself?

What is night?

What is Man?

Nothing.
