About this speaker

When an artistic studio adopts a startup mindset, that’s the secret to succeeding as an underdog. Oldenburg co-directed “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,” which won the 2011 Oscar for best animated short film. His nimble approach to running a studio led Moonbot to create two best-selling iPad apps, including “The Numberlys,” a fanciful depiction of the origin of the alphabet, and an interactive “Morris Lessmore” app that brings the short film to life on the iPad. Being flexible enough to change mediums at the change of the wind is crucial to Moonbot’s creative success.
