The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Oh wow.  I know that it is hard to find 15 minutes in your day to watch an animated film, but you truly must make the time for this one – especially if you are a lover of books.  This Oscar-nominated short is stunning in graphics and in its message.  My students will be having a discussion about the impact of Gutenberg next week, and I fully intend to incorporate this video into the lesson.  It is beautiful and inspiring.  Bravo to the animation shop, Moonbot Studios for this truly amazing video. (If the embedded video does not work, you can view it at http://vimeo.com/35404908.  You can also download the video FOR FREE from iTunes.  There is an accompanying app for $4.99, which I have not yet previewed.)

 

UPDATE 9/28/16:  Unfortunately, the film is no longer available for free 😦  You can download it from iTunes for $4.99.  It is a beautiful video, and I wish it could still be viewed by everyone…
