The ErlKing (film)
Zelkowicz studied English and biopsychology before turning to animation. He is graduate of CalArts, for which The ErlKing was his thesis film, and has worked with the Will Vinton and Chiodo Brothers studios.
In May 2012, The ErlKing was an adapted for use by the American progressive metal band Hope Lies Within. In conjunction with the band's musical release, permission was granted to Hope Lies Within by artist Benjamin Zelkowicz to adapt his already-released sand art video The ErlKing to their musical version of Franz Schubert's Der Erlkönig and an English poem version titled The Erlking. Although permission was granted, the film's original integrity could not be broken. The only changes to the original sand art video were the opening and closing credits. Even though none of the film's original timing was modified, Hope Lies Within made small musical cuts to their recording that would allow the song to fit over the video seamlessly.
