Video Length: 2:11
Produced by: The New Zealand Book Council

The New Zealand Book Council uses an interesting angle to promote reading with this animated preview of how they "bring books to life". Viewers are introduced to the book Going West by Maurice Gee through an animated scene from the book. The really creative part of this video, produced by Andersen M Studio, is that the animation is driven by paper cutouts made from the book itself.
