I just received this transmission from the relatively near reaches of cyberspace. Later this week, I hope to learn a bit more about Moonbot's experience at Siggraph:
Lampton Enochs and Alissa Kantrow of Louisiana Production Consultants and William Joyce of howdy ink, LLC are proud to announce the formation of Moonbot Studios (formerly Digilou), a digital animation and visual effects company. Headquartered in the Inter Tech Science Park in Shreveport, LA, Moonbot Studios will support the growing film, television, and digital interactive media industries in Louisiana and worldwide, by combining the incredible talents of its team and the generous entertainment industry incentives in Louisiana.
Currently in production at Moonbot, "The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore" is the story of a man whose life is erased and who loses everything. Co-Directed by William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg, Morris Lessmore, with no place to go, finds a new and wonderful world through the curative power of story and is thus inspired to rewrite his own story.
And, hey. They're hiring. Click The Legion for details.
