Moobot Studios Presents a Look Behind the Scenes of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Wednesday, September 14, 2011, University Center Theater
7:00-8:15 pm
Free and Open to the Public

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. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. 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 harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals.  “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

Mootbot Studios will also be discussing their interactive App based on the film. The Morris Lessmore short film and App are available on iTunes.
