Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

On a shelf in the Parisian bookstore Shakespeare and Company, Olympia Le-Tan, Spike Jonze, and Simon Cahn created and directed a short, spooky love story. 

Mourir Auprès de Toi (To Die By Your Side), at just over six minutes, is their stop-motion starring felt characters of classic novels. You can watch video above and learn how to create your own stop-motion this week at Bookmans

More event details after the jump ... Happy Halloween!

Sailbear Labs' class (open to 12- to 18-year-olds) will be an opportunity to learn stop-motion basics with Play-Doh at Bookmans, 8034 N. 19th Ave., from 6 to 7 p.m.. No experience required and admission is free.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
