Morning Ritual

Eric Power's Morning Ritual is a heart-warming short that takes a daily routine that all fathers and parents have in common and puts a wonderfully whimsical spin on it.

Combining stop-motion animation, puppetry, photographic backgrounds and ambient early morning sounds from his home, Power animates the early morning ritual of a monster dad who just wants his little one to catch some shut-eye. The construction paper DIY aesthetic definitely reminds me of nickelodeon's early live-action programs like Blues Clues or Gullah Gullah Island. Massive nostalgia moment right now.
