Hi, Bryan Here….
Here you can watch the 15 minute short animated film of ‘The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore’ which one best animated short at the oscars this year. This is on par in my opinion with any Pixar film. If you want the HD version, head to iTunes and pay $1.99 for it. I’m sure all these shorts will be on blu-ray soon enough.
“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. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. 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 hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals. “Morris Lessmore” is old-fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.” The film’s site HERE.
