Spike Jonze's Latest Animated Project With Handbag Designer Olympia Le-Tan

Oct 18, 2011

Where the Wild Things Are director Spike Jonze and collaborator Simon Cahn teamed up with handbag designer Olympia Le-Tan for a new stop-motion video, Mourir aupres de toi (To Die By Your Side). The animation is set in Paris' well-known bookstore, Shakespeare and Company — the location where James Joyce was first published by Sylvia Beach, the store's founder. The duo collaborated after Jonze admired her handiwork and asked Le-Tan to create a Catcher in the Rye embroidery for him. Le-Tan agreed, but requested one of Jonze's famed videos in return. In the video, pieces of book covers come to life and fall in love. You can catch a glimpse of the project in the teaser vid, which shows that Le-Tan and Jonze used a lot of felt for this piece. Is there anyone that Jonze can't work with? Dig in below.
