Short Film: Under Covers (2018)

Long, long ago, there used to be something called zines. They were physically real, printed on paper and were meant to be read. You could hold them, and keep them. They were hard to discover, generally, and a labor of love often only available from the creative source. We here at a wasted life loved them, and even produced a couple by ourselves (Augen, Frank, Punk Ducky, Totally Racist Comics) and with others (Leche Libre).
Amongst our favorites zines were Murder Can Be Fun, which we still miss, and boingboing. We don't miss boingboing as much, mainly because although the last print issue was long ago, it lives on as one of the most popular blogs around. Check it out… as if you haven't already. 
This month's Short Film comes by way of boingboing, which presented it to their reading public on August 5th: Under Covers, by Michaela Olsen.
To proffer the plot description found at boingbloing: "On the night of a lunar eclipse, we uncover the sweet, salacious, and spooky secrets of a small town. From a pigtailed psychopath to naughty nuns and everything in between, this stop-motion animated film conjures a comforting thought: that weird is relative." 
For more information about the film, check out what the filmmaker has to say at vimeo.
