5.0 out of 5 stars Description Of My Work May 29, 2006
This DVD contains many of the short hand crafted personal Experimental Narrative/Avant Garde films i made between 2001- 2006. Many of my films are hybrids of Live Action and rare techniques of Animation containing spiritual themes told from a surrealistic approuch. My work covers a wide range of themes, techniques, structures and cryptographic symbolism yet remains coherantly part of an overall aesthetic message or body. Those who might enjoy this DVD would probably be lovers of Hayao Miyasaki, Jan Svankmajer, Guy Maddin, Bros Quay and alas Tim Burton among others. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative Films July 25, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So, Im a painter. I mention this not because you care, but because it relates to why I like this [not really eclectic] compilation of shorts. These are four very subdued, similar in style, abstract mostly animated shorts-- three of which feature at least some stop motion, most of which are very heavy on richly colored, semi-fuzzy looking landscapes shot with an 8mm camera. There is little to no dialogue happening in any of the shorts, and low key music through out. I loved it, and it only misses out on a star because the last short incorporated the bible in a cheesy, unattractive way I did not enjoy. Bottom line: eclectic shorts isnt for everybody, but if youre into film as an art form, youll dig it.

2.0 out of 5 stars The first two minutes November 15, 2011
By A. Ward
Eric has released all of his creativity in the first two minutes and it was so impressive that I forced myself to sit through the remainder. I hope he reads this as a praise of the work he did in "The Forest". I was so excited when I watched "The Forest" that I watched it about ten times before continuing. When I did continue, I thought the next short film was from another film maker or maybe a bad joke. There was nothing else I would ever suggest anyone watch but the first two minutes. Please expound upon that in which you show talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Visionary February 21, 2007
This collection of works will be treasured as the early work of two young Visionaries- a must for any connoisseur of the Avant-Garde. What emerges in it- through it- is a unique and powerful synthetic Vision that vibrates with positive intent- that of Wonder. We need not compare it to Burton or any of the `Masters' because what emerges here is no mere mimicry of previous filmmakers- but a sensitive and skilled adaptation and elaboration of film language- crafted and emerging as its own unique voice or I should say duet- maybe chorus? Burton and Svankmejer- even the Brothers Quay did not have such collaboration- such cohesion with their soundtracks, and indeed Jeffery Leiser's soundtracks are intimately linked with the images of his brother- adding levels and depths of motion, colour and life through sound. And as for my own tastes- indeed the Leiser Brothers are far less tritely morbid, serialized and clichéd as Burton and far more symbolically sophisticated. Eric Leiser's work is far more joyfully mystical and whimsical than Svankmejer- but it contains within it similar eerie and uncanny boundaries crossed between animate and inanimate; animal, vegetable and mineral. The Quay Brothers Animate a dead world- a world of identification with objects and dead matter- nothing is ever quite alive. The Leiser Brothers see a world in which everything is deeply infused with life and light- a Vision, it could be said, which is highly infectious- in a good way.

2.0 out of 5 stars eclectic shorts November 7, 2006
This dvd is not what it appears to be . Yes the first short "Forest" clocks in at about 2 minutes, and is somewhat interesting in that it does resemble some of the qualities of the 'masters' supposed to be an influence, however the remaining shorts are not much more than hand held home movies shot on one's first vacation.The new Tim Burton, I hardly think so. Let's wait a few years before we start comparing ourselves to the Quays or Svankmajer or Tim Burton. I want my money back! Oh yeah, the music is not bad though. Keep trying!!
