(Video Link) A terrible storm blows a man into another world where books can fly like birds. The crew says this wordless film was inspired in equal measure by "Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books."
The Academy-Award-nominated film mixes live action miniatures and CGI. It was directed by William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg, with music by John Hunter.
