Michael Cunningham Sentence Animated

Today the bi-monthly literary journal Electric Literature released that bloody “Single Sentence Animation” video, as animator Jonathan Ashley interpreted a short short story from novelist Michael Cunningham.

This is the second single sentence animation posted on the journal’s brand-new YouTube page. Previously, animator Luca Dipierro interpreted Lydia Millet‘s “Sir Henry” in a brief video. Earlier this year, the journal made publishing headlines for its unusual distribution model and pledge to pay $1,000 per story.

Check it out: “This is the Electric Literature YouTube channel. Here you will find all kinds of cross-over projects. Whether we are matching contemporary writers with illustrators, fine artists, live-action filmmakers, or musicians, this is the place to see the results. These days, we’re on an animation kick. Enjoy.”
