Inspired in equal measure by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz and a love for books, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books that 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 hybrid style of animation that harks back to silent films and MGM Technicolor musicals. Morris Lessmore is old-fashioned and cutting-edge at the same time.  The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore was awarded the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film in the 84th Academy Awards.
