The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Nominated for an Oscar in the category of Short Film (Animated), this beautifully rendered story "of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor," by author and illustrator William Joyce and codirector Branden Oldenburg, uses miniatures, computer animation, and 2D animation that harkens back to silent films, making it appear old-fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.
