“Odin’s Afterbirth” by Joseph Bennett

Joseph Bennett is an animation artist for J. Walter Thompson by day, working on various commercials for MicroSoft and Zyrtec, and by night he does his own thing. Here’s one of ’em: Odin’s Afterbirth, part of a trilogy he’s working on. I like his stuff, reminds me of animated mini-comics. Warning: this 3 minute chapter is a bit violent.

    I like the story. Look forward to seeing the next chapter(s). Funny thing though, a second viewing revealed that the first two men switch positions and one of them suddenly wields a different weapon.

    I really like this kind of one-man-show animation.
    Nice job, Joseph. More, please!

    It held my interest like a vice grip. It has a distinctive look. It has good music and sound design. It made me want to see what happens next. I like it.
