ORION is a project born from childhood curiosities made of other worlds and the raw desire to bring forth something special and unique that attempts to evolve the zeitgeist of the medium.
The Orion premiere trailer is born from months of focused effort and hard work by an astounding team: Ash Thorp (Director & Creator), Hydra Studios (Co-production Studio), and Aeph & Pilotpriest (Musical Composers). We set out to create a preview into the larger realm of Orion, and an intense glimpse into its story of sacrifice and violence explored through the lens of fantasy and myth.
Orion is intended to be a contemplative moving piece of art. Each shot and setup falls on traditional art fundamentals in an attempt to get your mind to fall further into the world.
Each scene in the Orion Trailer began as concepts in my mind which I then crafted over months into a series of 125 chronological narrative paintings. Each piece of art represents a still from the film and tells the origin story of Orion. These original paintings were the foundational blueprint for the film and paved the way for production.
Behind The Scenes
In an effort to try something a bit different for the behind the scenes reel… we wanted to focus on showing the insane amount of time, craft, detail, and energy each frame of Orion took to bring to life. It takes a team of highly-skilled and focused creatives aligned together to make something pure and from the heart.
