Nominated for an Academy Award and awarded the Best Short Film at the
1999 Sundance Film Festival, MORE is a stop-motion mixed-media short
film written and directed by Mark Osborne, the co-director of Kung Fu
Panda and the upcoming animated feature film based on the iconic book
The Little Prince.
MORE tells the story of an old, tired
inventor as he struggles through joyless life in a drab and passionless
society, leading the same cold and colorless existence accepted by the
identical drones around him. At once tortured and inspired by his
dreaming of and yearning for his younger carefree days, he struggles to
finish the invention he hopes will give his life meaning and worth. His
world, and the world of those around him, is transformed when his secret
invention is completed. However, his subsequent success does not come
without sacrifice. The inventor realizes that the true essence of his
inspiration cannot be manufactured...
