Spike Jonze's "Mourir Auprès de Toi" Animated Film

Famed filmmaker Spike Jonze got together with designer Olympia Le-Tan whose embroidered clutch-bags come to life a tragicomic stop-motion animation "Mourir Auprès de Toi" (To Die By Your Side) shot on the shelves of the famed Parisian bookstore Shakespeare and Company. The project started after Jonze asked for a "Catcher in the Rye" embroidery to put on his wall and the plucky Le-Tan asked for a film in return. French filmmaker Simon Cahn co-directed the feature over the period of six months along with the team who spent night and day animating the 3,000 pieces of felt Le-Tan had cut by hand.
