Review: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Winner of Best Animated Short Film at the Academy Awards 2012

We’re exited to bring you our review of the brand-new interactive book The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lesmore. Design and animation is done by ex-Pixar designer William Joyce, also known from Toy Story and A Bugs Life. Morris Lessmore is a humorous story about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques, Joyce and co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a new narrative experience that’s inspired by silent films and MGM Technicolor musicals.
