Here’s is the trailer to The Story of Pines, a new stop-motion animated short film co-written by singer-songwriter Alison Sudol of A Fine Frenzy, which will premiere on TakePart TV on October 2. This imaginative fable about a pining tree who is given the unheard-of chance (for a conifer) to make a life of her own choosing was crafted by Sudol in response to our accelerating pace of life in the 21st century.

The film is a companion piece to Pines, the third full-length from A Fine Frenzy, which will be released on iTunes on October 9. Drawing inspiration from the redwood forests and dramatic landscapes of Northern California and Washington’s Cascade Mountains, the thirteen new original songs survey a sonic landscape as vast and deep as the woods, their namesake. See the lyric video to the track “Avalanches” off of Pines below.
