Mike Patton (Faith No More, Dead Cross, etc.) and French composer Jean-Claude Vannier have premiered a new video for their song “A Schoolgirl’s Day” via Dangerous Minds. This track is from the duo’s collaborative album “Corpse Flower.“
Director Nino Del Padre commented:
“When I first listened to “A Schoolgirl’s Day,” I fell in love with the intense and ominous track. I also knew that coming up with a concept for the video would be challenging as Ipecac gave me full creative control. I spent a few days brainstorming and I had the track on loop while surfing the web for inspiration when I remembered a 1962 low-budget classic, Carnival of Souls. While watching parts of the movie with the song playing, I knew I had something that might work.
After spending some time editing a demo, I realized that this was going to work better than I thought, and I had something special. It’s almost as if the film was created for this song. The plot follows Mary Henry (Candace Hilligoss), a young woman whose life is disturbed after a car accident. The film has been named as a precursor to the works of various filmmakers, including David Lynch, George A. Romero, Lucrecia Martel and James Wan.”
