The Tale of Hillbelly – Encyclopedia Pictura

10 Jun

A limber backwoods yogi treks through a hilly landscape of evergreens while a cute little fox has a gutsy adventure. I have never seen anything that looks like this video. The combination of live-action costumes, fairytale backgrounds, experimental puppetry and sweet practical effects creates a familiar yet creepy world. Encyclopedia Pictura is the studio that brought us  Panda Bear’s lush and psychedelic “Boys Latin” video. There’s an interview with the creators Daren Rabinovitch, Isaiah Saxon and Sean Hellfritsch talking about the process of making this labor of love in Juxtapose Magazine.
