Animation: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

at


From Moonbot Studios. Produced by Lampton Enochs and co-directed by Brandon Oldenburg and William Joyce, who also wrote the screenplay. Currently up for an Oscar.

Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, “Morris Lessmore” is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) award winning author/ illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a new narrative experience that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals. “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.
