This Is Where We Live, an imaginatively animated short film, was created by Apt Studio to commemorate 4th Estate Publishing’s 25th anniversary. Twenty animators labored for 3 weeks to produce the stop-motion film, and the results are truly remarkable.
Snip from Apt Studio’s blog:
The film celebrates both 4th Estate’s output, and the world of booklovers: a world made out of stories. The film contains numerous in-jokes and references to the books it features, and everything, from the ships in port to the cinema in Soho to the man fishing in Central Park is made out of books, covers, pages and words.
You can visit the official site of the film to watch some time-lapse videos and production stills taken of the creative process.
