Morris Lessmore Now on the Oscar Shortlist

So the short (which I referenced here) I was a scenic artist on has made it to the Oscar shortlist for nominations! A sea of about 300 shorts were eventually pared down to this list, and from this list, members of the Academy are going to pick what will actually be nominated.

It’s exciting! I’m friends with not just some of the people in the set fabrication stage but also most of the animators at the studio.

Click here for the trailer, if you haven’t seen it yet! It’s available for purchase on iTunes… alternately, if you have an iPad, purchasing the Morris Lessmore storybook app (which, again, my boyfriend was a creative director on), you’ll get the film as part of your purchase.

I wondered if I could needle felt a narwhal.

The answer is yes!
