Mourir Auprès de Toi (To Die By Your Side)

A beautifully done stop-motion video written by Spike Jonze and Olympia Le-Tran.

Spike Jonze is a filmmaker, producer, director and has worked on Being John Malcovich, Adaptation, Where the Wild Things Are, MTV’s Jackass, and a number of music videos. Working with Weezer, Beastie Boys, and Bjork.

When he met Olympia Le-Tran through friends, he was intrigued by these felt characters she made for bags. He wanted her to make him a Catcher In The Rye embroidery for his wall and in return she wanted a film. So began their collaboration on this video that celebrates what goes on after hours at the famous Shakespeare and Company bookstore in Paris. Read more here http://www.nowness.com/day/2011/10/17/1640

I love the humor, especially in the end credits, making this love story quirky and great.
