gravity sleeps

Gravity Sleeps is a creative collaboration and media production company. In addition to music videos and narrative film, Gravity Sleeps is well-versed in documentary, interactive, and commercial work. Our work has been featured on NPR, Pitchfork, Esquire, and has screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

Visual storytelling is the tool we use to engage with our world. It is the heir to the communal campfire which drew countless generations around its embracing, flickering glow; and we take that tradition a little too seriously.

Oh, Eric, we’ve got plans for you alright.  We’ve got plans for you…
We’re glad you’re having fun, we’re getting so many little inside secret compliments about you’re work from our peers!

Just took a break from drawing Scrimshaw and ended up turning the last couple panels into this weird gif (don’t stare in his eyes!)
I am sorry for the lack of posts lately. I’ve been pretty consumed by this job and haven’t had much time to work on my own projects or take on many editorial gigs. After I turn in this last batch of pages the writer’s should start revealing more about this book. I’m really excited to see where this project goes. While the writers have hundreds of pages written and planned out, taking on that many seems way out of my league. We’ll see though. I’ll at least be on for a few issues depending on how they decide to structure it. So far it’s been a hell of a lot of fun working on this so I’m excited to reveal more once we’re ready.

That’s something!  Could you make it 80?  Check it out if you haven’t already!

Incredibly exciting new rough work from Eric Scott Pfeiffer on the Scrimshaw graphic novel written by Ian Green and Wesley Wingo!
I really haven’t seen whaling treated this way… ever.  So pumped for what comes next (spoiler alert: it doesn’t end well…)

Little late in saying so, but had a great time at SXSW this year seeing Harrison Atkins’ Chocolate Heart in a very bizarre screening block at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema!

Hey hey!

Check out Joan as Policewoman’s new fresh to death video and single from director and comic writer Alex de Campi produced by Wesley/Gravity Sleeps for RSM!

The vid was filmed in NYC at Windmill Studios in Brooklyn with the incredible support of Carrie White, Michael Yetter, and the whole Factory team.

Super proud of the results.

UK’s The Telegraph had this to say in it’s exclusive launch of the video:

"The video, filmed in New York City and directed by Alex de Campi, comprises of a series of surreal TV tableaux with Joan dressed in each technicolour vignette.
The track’s closing scat-rap is by US comedian Reggie Watts, who Wasser describes as “an incredibly inspired musician as well as being a comedic genius.”
