It's from The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore which is a 2011 American animated short film directed by William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg, and produced by Moonbot Studios in Shreveport, Louisiana. Described as an "allegory about the curative powers of story", the film centers around bibliophile Lessmore and his custodianship of a magical library of flying books. It was created using computer animation, miniatures and traditional hand-drawn techniques.

After winning over a dozen film festivals, the film was awarded the Best Animated Short Film at the 84th Academy Awards. An official iPad app based on the film is also available in the Apple App Store. A book adaption is expected to be released in late 2012.

You can watch the film here:

'Aussie Rick' (AussieRick) Very nice, well done :)

Ellie (EllieArcher) I loved the film-it actually made me cry (probably anything using books has extra power for me, but still-a terrific film).

I love the masthead even more now.

I'm glad so many people do like the masthead. I hadn't realized though that so many people didn't know about this wonderful short film either. Glad you've seen it now. :-)

Lea (LeaDFW) | 214 comments I was actually just reading about the book this morning -- didn't know they'd done a film!! The book is by William Joyce, and is available for pre-order now (I believe it has a September release date?). Can't wait to see the movie -- and I love the masthead, too!
