The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore!

Incredibly sweet short film from Moontbot Studios and directed by William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg.
A tale inspired by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz and a love for books, using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time. And…
Its been nominated for an Oscar in this years Academy Awards. Good Luck!
