In addition to being members of the band Icky Blossoms, Nik Fackler and Derek Pressnall are filmmakers. They created a sci-fi horror short film called Fountain (which was directed by Fackler) and they got Deerhunter/Atlas Sound’s Bradford Cox to compose the score for it.

Contributors include the Breeders, Bradford Cox, Big Thief, Jenny Hval, Bing And Ruth, Future Islands, and more.
