Get in the Halloween spirit with Case Jernigan’s newest collaboration with Love Science Music, Werewolf Horseman Mummy. Having worked together previously on a popular video called A Brief History of Soccer, these New York City-based artists have come together again to create a whimsical and eerie 60-second animation that plays on familiar Halloween characters: a werewolf, the Headless Horseman, and a mummy.

Using “stop-motion techniques, ink drawings, and handmade paper cutouts to create characters and motions,” Jernigan creates a dizzying tribute to Halloween set to Love Science Music’s dramatic and evocative soundtrack, which “finds rhythm and orchestral atmosphere through dynamic sound design.”
