A making of video for Spike Jonze and Simon Cahn’s animated short film Mourir auprès de toi (To Die Next To You) has found its way online. The stop-motion film entirely handmade from felt will premiere May 18 in the Cannes Film Festival’s Critics’ Week. The idea for the animation was apparently inspired by French designer Olympia Le Tan and her line of designer clutches. You can see photos of the purse, and of Swinton carrying it, on the Olympia Le-Tan Tumblr.
