Filmmaker Spike Jones (Where the Wild Things Are) has been making short films and videos in recent years. Here’s a wonderful stop motion love story for book lovers called Mourir AuprÃ¨s de Toi (To Die By Your Side). Set in famed bookstore Shakespeare and Company, the film tells the story of the skeleton from the cover of Macbeth who falls in love with Mina Harker on the cover of Dracula.

At Nowness, Jones shares his thoughts about the short and the creative process: “A short is like a sketch,â€ Jones says. â€œYou can have an idea or a feeling and just go and do it.â€
