Etgar Keret Sentence Animated

Electric Literature has released a new “Single Sentence Animation,” bringing the first sentence of a Etgar Keret‘s “Todd” to life.

In the video embedded above, Tatia Rosenthal animated the short story and Christopher Bowen made the music. Here is an excerpt from the story:

Todd is the kind of person you want beside you in a burning house or on a sinking ship. The kind of guy you know won’t jump into a lifeboat and leave you behind. But at the moment, we’re not in a burning house or on a sinking ship, we’re just drinking organic, soymilk lattés in a funky, natural café in Williamsburg. And that makes me a little sad. Because if there were something burning or sinking in the area, I could remind myself why I like him, but when Todd starts hammering away at me to write him a story, he’s hard to stomach.
