On the Street Where You Read

Alison Morris -- June 11th, 2009

Picture a world comprised of book covers, book spines, and people cut from actual book pages. That’s the world created by Apt Studio and Asylum Films in the stop-motion video "This Is Where We Live" that they produced for the 25th anniversary of 4th Estate (an imprint of HarperCollins in the U.K.) some seven months ago, though I only just stumbled upon it today, completely by accident! I love the whimsical quality of this short film and am especially taken with the thought of paper birds emerging from paper trees. Beautiful!

If you enjoy this video you might also enjoying taking a peek at the production stills and watching the short time-lapse films of the animators cutting out scenes, the production team building the sets, the crew filming the shots, etc.
