The Elder Tree

https://vimeo.com/125673578

This is a music video I created for a dark folk lament by Moth Rah called The Elder Tree. The puppets have all been made by myself, which I performed with against a backdrop of driftwood trees and shadows to tell the sad story of four untimely deaths that are revealed to us in the song.

Music: Moth Rah

Puppets, props, performance, direction and editing: Layla Holzer

Filming: Spike Dennis and Layla Holzer
