      Welcome to our city - to our world - of books. This is where we live. A film for 4th Estate Publishers' 25th Anniversary. Produced by Apt Studio and Asylum Films. The film was produced in stop-motion over 3 weeks in Autumn 2008. Each scene was shot on a home-made dolly by an insane bunch of animators; you can see time-lapse films of each sequence being prepared and shot in our other films.

        We dug through the darkest recesses of our minds and studio to create original music and sound design for this Buck masterpiece. Working with squirming, analog-tape leeches, moaning coeds, screaming guitar goats, and brain-exploding psychedelia, we were certainly in our element. Plus, it's always fun to rock out and get a little weird for a good cause! Good Books, an online bookseller, passes all of its profits through to Oxfam. Our hats go off to Buck and String Theory. Enjoy the trip! Client: Good Books Agency: String Theory Director: Buck Music & Sound Design: Antfood DISCLAIMER: What you will see is an entirely fictional and completely unendorsed representation. [Though we humbly suggest Hunter S. Thompson might have liked it.] We are devoted fans paying homage. No disrespect is intended.

                This short film tells a disappointing year in the life of a book. Though they might often be our most treasured possessions, it is remarkable how easily books can be neglected, mistreated and sometimes even lost.
