“The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” is one of five animated short films that will be considered for outstanding film achievements of 2011 in the 84th Academy Awards ®.
Even the animation is digital, everything what is said, shown in the animation is more ” analog” because in my eyes the story is about the beauty of books and how they are born, raised and what happens to people who do not read and so much more…
well done by the animation studio Moonbot and a production by William Joyce and director Brandon Oldenburg
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. “Morris Lessmore” is old-fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.
I wish the team all the best and I have to look for the other four animation to make myself a broader overview.
