William Joyce, who also worked on Toy Story, Robots, A Bug's Life and Meet the Robinsons, to name a few. The amount of interaction is really superb and combines the awesomeness of movies and animation to create a whole new experience.
I found it really interesting that the whole story of Morris Lessmore was inspired by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books. It's a story of "people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favour".
First seen on The Fox is Black.
