Awesome Bookish Short Film

I was made aware of this by Rina@ Rina's Reading and I just had to share it with you all! This video just makes me smile. And yes I know it's 15 minutes long, but trust me, if you love books it's worth it!

Summary from IMBD:
Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, 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 MGM Technicolor musicals. Morris Lessmore is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

Thanks for sharing it and linking back to me. It's such a cute video and it even made me tear up a bit towards the end.

Hey, thanks for the comment on my blog. :) Editing is going to take time, but it'll be worth it. :D

These books look awesome and are for sure on my to-read list on goodreads! I hope to finish my list of items on hold already at the library and get into these soon :). Visiting from goodreads, the group we're both in where we posted our blogs. forgot the name.
