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.”
