App-maker Moonbot Gets An Oscar Nomination
"The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore," directed by William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg, is one of five animated short films that will be considered for outstanding film achievement at the 84th Academy Awards on Feb. 26th, 2012.
At the same time that they were developing the Old World film, Moonbot Studios also was hard at work on a New World application, an interactive iPad App of Morris Lessmore (trailer above), that is available on iTunes for $4.99 in the App Store.
Faithful readers of this blog will remember I've previously blogged about the innovative Morris Lessmore app (including some very informative "making-of" videos). To read about how this Oscar nomination might serve as a bridge between Old Media (film) and New (apps), you can follow this link.
