Ex-Pixar Animator Brings New Level of Interaction to iPad Book

Posted by · 8489 views
Moonbot Studios, led by ex-Pixar animator William Joyce, has released the award-winning short film 'The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore' as an interactive iPad book.

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. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) award winning author/ illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a new narrative experience that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals. "Morris Lessmore" is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

Features:
● Groundbreaking interface that's actually fun
● A visual table of contents that anyone can follow
● Loads of games
● You can draw
● Play the piano
● Play with your food
● Lots of expensive beautiful animation
● Get sucked into the book with immers-o-vision (patent pending)
● Will make you laugh
● Will make you sigh
● And maybe make you cry (in a good way)
● Will make you love reading

What's New In This Version:
"About the Short Film" page update: You can now purchase the award-winning short film directly from the App, on the iTunes store.

You can purchase The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore from the App Store for $4.99.
