Peter Lundgren's hallucinatory scrawl of a sentence from author Ben Stroud's incredible "Byzantium", published in Electric Literature No. 4. With music by William "Lucky" Lee.

The sentence reads: "There I would watch others taking their pleasure—keeping to the shadows, my hand hidden, as I studied a chariot racer leaning into a prostitute, her leg wrapped round his torso, or libertines goading a gilded crocodile in the bearpit, their bodies slurred by powders from the east."

Single Sentence Animations are creative collaborations. The writer selects a favorite sentence from his or her work and the animator creates a short film in response.
