Short Film: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
I failed in my duties when I completely forgot to post this on Monday evening, but if you haven't stumbled across it just yet, feast your eyes on Oscar winning animated short The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, the mini-movie that beat out Pixar's La Luna. Directed by William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg, it's a story for book lovers that's oddly in step with the nostalgia sweep of this year's Academy Awards. With a touch of Wizard of Oz, a bit of silent homage to Buster Keaton, and some very charming books, I'd say it deserves the recognition. What say you?
