This award-winning film is a gorgeously animated allegory about the transformative power of story. Inspired by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, award-winning author/illustrator William Joyce and Co-Director Brandon Oldenburg use a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, and 2D animation) to present a poignant, humorous story that harkens back to silent films and MGM Technicolor musicals. Won Audience Favorite Award for Animated Shorts at the 2011 Palm Springs International ShortFest among many other awards.
