Watch this haunting, astonishing stop-motion film Schulnik made this year. Entitled "Mound," it is a bizarre, candy-colored Hieronymus Bosch landscape populated with pastel skulls, gnomes, red-nosed clowns, and woodland spirits, all crafted and undulating by Schulnik.
And her music choice is pretty inspired too... because of this short film, I have been introduced to the genius of Scott Walker who recorded "It's Raining Today" in 1969. The hovering, nearly dissonant strings are a brilliant touch and compliment his Burt Bachrach-style crooning. Walker is still recording.
