Famed filmmaker Spike Jonze has teamed with designer Olympia Le-Tan for “Mourir Auprès de Toi” (To Die By Your Side), a truly remarkable stop-motion short film. Set on a shelf in famed Parisian bookstore, Shakespeare and Company, the star-crossed love story tells the tale of a klutzy skeleton and his flame-haired amour, playing out amidst Le-Tan’s illustrations of iconic first-edition book covers. The project started after Jonze asked for a Catcher in the Rye embroidery to put on his wall and the plucky Le-Tan asked for a film in return. Enlisting French filmmaker Simon Cahn to co-direct, the team wrote the script between Los Angeles and Paris over a six month period, before working night and day animating the 3,000 pieces of felt Le-Tan had cut by hand. Check out the short film above and an interview with Jonze here.

Widening the Running Paradigm

Looking back at the evolutionary development of humans, our physiology and subsequent bipedalism has become a characteristic trait. The whole idea of “persistence hunting” enabled humans to develop a respectable degree of endurance and efficiency. While we as humans are far from the fastest, we’d rank as one the animal kingdom’s finest for covering long distances. Yet, the act of running itself was largely an oversight among the non-athletic elite up and until the 1970s. Thanks largely in part to the 1972 Olympic Marathon win by American Frank Shorter, this event effectively set the wheels in motion for a movement that would later claim 25 million participants within a span of two decades.
