Producer: Alexandra Becker

Neil Gaiman’s Rhysling Award-winning poem “The Mushroom Hunters” is brought to vivid life through a collaboration with musician Amanda Palmer and Gaiman himself. Using a multi-layered rig to film this beautiful piece of work, artist Caroline Rudge added visual depth to her unique illustration style and employed stop-motion techniques to create a piece of animation that is as visually stunning as the poem is thought-provoking. Voiced by Amanda and funded via her Patreon, the film features an original score by Jherek Bischoff.
