The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore

January 31, 2012
We were looking through the Oscar-nominated animated short films this morning, and came across this great one, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore. We were caught by it because it was inspired by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books. That is a lot of interesting inspirations. And the short has a lot of interesting techniques and styles across its 15 minutes, part classic part new technology craft. The piece was created by award winning author/ illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg.
