25th Estate film - Creative Review Blog
Publishing house 4th Estate celebrates its 25th anniversary next year and commissioned London’s Apt Studio to mark the occasion with a stop-motion film, This is Where We Live, available to view at 25thestate.com.

The film, produced in three weeks by Apt’s Peter Collingridge and James Bridle (and directed by Asylum’s Ben Falk and Jos Newbolt), features an entire ‘city’ made of cut-outs from a range of covers and pages from well-known 4th Estate titles.

“Everything is made out of 4th Estate’s books,” says Collingridge, “from the streets, to the zebra crossings from Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections cover, to the Greenwich Observatory taken from Dava Sobel’s Longitude.”

“Everything is made out of 4th Estate’s books,” says Collingridge, “from the streets, to the zebra crossings from Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections cover, to the Greenwich Observatory taken from Dava Sobel’s Longitude.”

“There are lots of in-jokes in the film, such as the man falling off the boat – which is a scene from The Corrections – and it definitely bears up to repeat viewings.”

With some beautifully detailed production design from Pippa Culpepper and help from a handful of “book-chopping maniacs” the team has created a charming piece of animation that will be used as the publisher’s Christmas card and edited to make a series of introductory pieces for all anniversary-related events.

More at the fifthestate.co.uk blog (which was also designed by Apt Studio).
