Los Angeles animator Vanessa Soberanis is a most talented artist as a visit to her blog will testify. Her music video, Siberian Farmland, for Minster Hill, has her working with stop motion and puppets. I normally give a run down of the storyline and I'm relishing the opportunity here. Girl with black hair eats at table with two others. Naturally they say Grace. Maybe her prayers are answered though the girl becomes concerned by the sudden stillness of her dinner companions. Stillness? A mere touch and one of the heads falls off. Shock horror, she also spills the milk. It's out of the house and into the darkness to confront a reclining pig who seems to speak only to release an octopus whose deadly embrace pulls her into the pig's mouth and, who knows, hell. Will the girl escape? Will she discover the correct eyeball? A strange music video that seems to suit the song and the race against time. I've never seen the tentacles of an octopus beat out time before. Such gore and abandon needs a structured approach to create however and Vanessa's second dedicated blog has more background detail than any self-respecting critic could reasonably ask for. Practicalities in a moment but first the surreal detail as described by Vanessa - sample: "so after the girl gets pulled into the carcass of a dead pig by the arms of an octopus". You couldn't make it up. Practical details too of how to make the puppets: to discover that the pig for instance is made of "clay, with a mix of acrylic paint and beige spray paint". Description alongside photographs of production make this a joy. The whole animation is tongue in cheek, not nearly so gory as words alone might make out and great fun.
