"Pop Meets the Void"
A dark comedy about a musician who's been working on his first album for almost 15 years, Pop Meets the Void is a twisted indie-music film.
POP MEETS THE VOID is a part live-action, part-animation comedy that follows an aspiring musician as he struggles to write, record and release his first album after 15 years of toiling in obscurity. Told through a series of parallel narratives that explore different ideas of success, the film shows the musician as multiple versions of himself - failing, succeeding, quitting and, of course, wildly successful. These narratives overlap, crisscross, intertwine and seemingly never end in this dark, surrealist, indie-rock comedy. The soundtrack is composed by the film's writer/director William Cusick, who also stars in the film.
