The Art of the Literary Journal Trailer

Electric Literature has produced another one-sentence animation of a writer’s story, continuing to develop the art of the literary journal trailer.

This week they unveiled filmmaker Luca DiPierro‘s surreal interpretation of a sentence from Jenny Offill‘s short story, “The Tunnel”–a story featured in Electric Literature No.3. Read more about the one-sentence animations here.

DiPierro is the filmmaker behind 60 Writers/60 Places. That film featured famous writers reading in some unconventional places. Here’s more about that film: “There is Blake Butler reading in a subway, Deb Olin Unferth in a Laundromat, Jamie Gaughran-Perez in a beauty salon, Tita Chico in a dressing room, Gary Lutz at the botantical gardens, Will Eno in a park, Tao Lin next to a hot dog cart, and Rick Moody on a baseball field.”

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.”
