The blurb: Madelaine’s cabinet of curiosities contained a collection of wonders to both delight and horrify. One day, a mysterious item in her cabinet captures her attention. A darkly-tinged fantasy that explores the erotic-grotesque.

This is another great animated erotic short by Jennifer Linton, who also made “La Petit Morte”. The film had its premier at the Medusa Underground film festival in 2019.

A wunderkammer is a “cabinet of wonders”.

Musical score by Zev Farber

Wunderkammer is a 2D stop-motion animated film shot under camera using unarmatured, replacement paper cutouts. This traditional animation medium involves hundreds of individual drawings that are drawn on paper, scanned, printed, hand-coloured and cutout. These cutouts are swapped in frame-to-frame to create smooth, complex movements not possible with articulated paper puppets. The resulting film has all the hand-drawn charm and personality of traditional cel animation, plus the lovely textures and materiality of stop-motion.

The film was funded via an IndieGoGo campaign.
