Mourir Auprès de Toi

To Die By Your Side…

Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Where the Wild Things Are) directed this new stop-motion short titled Mourir Auprès de Toi (To Die By Your Side). Jonze co-directed with Simon Cahn, and over 3,000 pieces of felt were used to bring classic books like Catcher in the Rye to life. You can watch the full film over at, and here’s a behind the scenes assembly:
