One On One With Olympia Le-Tan

Olympia Le-Tan discusses her collaboration with Spike Jonze (Adaptation, Where The Wild Things Are) on the live-action / animated short Mourir Aupres de Toi. The film uses the old device of characters that come to life in a bookshop after the proprietor closes up, but in this case all the stop-motion animated material is hand-crafted from felt and stitching.

Spike Jonze and Simon Cahn will premiere their new animated short Mourir auprès de toi [To Die Next To You] at Cannes this week. The film is inspired by the French designer Olympia Le Tan and her line of clutch purses (believe it or not) and is done in stop-motion with cut-out felt, based on hand-drawn animation templates.  The filmmakers have made a short making-of video available, and here it is for you to view. Looks like charming stuff.
