"A film for 4th Estate Publishers' 25th Anniversary. Produced by Apt Studio and Asylum Films.

The film was produced in stop-motion over 3 weeks in Autumn 2008. Each scene was shot on a home-made dolly by an insane bunch of animators; you can see time-lapse films of each sequence being prepared and shot in our other films."

Some awesome books in there... I sorta cringed when I realized that none of them are readable anymore. Who needs the religious right when liberal (probably) artists are willing to chop up books in the name of art.


... too bad there wasn't a kindle in this...

You realize that the offensive thing about book burnings is not the fact that physical objects are destroyed, right?

As an environmentalist, I cringe whenever I notice an author writing a book because, you know, the trees. Nice derail.

What an excellent little short. There's so much packed into it, I'm looking forward to re-watching a few times.

THis is great, too bad my connection sucks tonight and I have to watch it in little chunks.

Just use downloadhelper and watch the video in your regular movie player when it is done downloading.

Thanks! I saw this about a year ago and have spent too much time ever since trying to find it again.

This is lovely, thanks. The way the color scheme shifts as we travel through the world of books is very subtle and gorgeous.
