The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a 15-minute homage to the printed book and to booklovers. A cunning blend of computer animation, stop-motion and traditional animation, this marvelous film was produced by Moonbot Studios of Shreveport, Louisiana. The flim’s creators, William Joyce, Brandon Oldenburg and Lampton Enochs, received a well deserved Oscar nomination this week in the Best Animated Short catagory. If you love the film, and I know you will, you can download a free HD version for your very own at iTunes.
