Combining traditional techniques with new animation technology, this animated music video for the song ‘Elk Grass’ by Pete Van Leeuwen captures the spirit of the lonely Elk Mountain and his longing for a companion. Elk Mountain is home to abounding wildlife, but he can only stiffly observe them in his rocky form. Elk Mountain communes with the night stars and finds and way to beckon a elk cow to wander inside his ear-cave. Told in an abstract and dreamy manner, the viewer floats in and out through space around the lonely mountain, capturing the serenity and isolation inherent in nature.
