Mourir Auprès de Toi

Olympia Le Tan is a Parish designer that is becoming more and more popular in the fashion world. She connects literature with fashion in an unexpected way - by making felted "book bags". Her crafting skills are really worth admiring.

But what happens when Olympia Le Tan meets Spike Jonze? Quirky and adorable film called Mourir Auprès de Toi (To Die By Your Side) is born.

Mourir Auprès de Toi is a love story between the female character from Dracula and the skeleton from Macbeth—dead Macbeth. It's a stop-motion animation directed by Spike Jonze and Simon Cahn and all the characters were handmade by Olympia Le Tan out of felt. Olympia met Jonze few years ago. He loved her work and asked if he can buy her clutches somewhere and she agreed to a "trade" - her work for his work. So now we have this witty story which brings to life and humanizes things that are not human in unique Jonze's style. You can check the "making of" video below and for full Mourir Auprès de Toi  movie , just click here.
