In the latest entry to our Single Sentence Animation series, Laura Heit animates a sentence from “White Dialogues” by Bennett Sims. Sound by Calpin Hoffman-Williamson.

The sentence: “Every movie is a pyramid, stuffed tight with mummies.”

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.
