Why We Do What We Do

All I have to say about this short is Wow.  This is exactly why, as writers, we do what we do.  Book mark this and pull it up when that rejection letter gets you down or you have serious writers block or just a case of the writing blues.  Yes, I know.  At 15 minutes, it isn’t really short, but it is totally wow.

As described on the IMDb:  Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story.

Special thanks to Hayden Thorn who brought this marvelous piece to my attention.  I hope he is as inspired by it as I was.
