Hi, we’re William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg, Academy Award winning filmmakers and co-hosts of TCM Movie Camp. Ask us anything!
Hi Reddit! We are co-hosts of a new show on Turner Classic Movies, TCM Movie Camp, a summer long film series, created to inspire a love of classic cinema in young filmmakers. With our awesome team at Moonbot Studios in Shreveport, La. we make movies, books, apps and video games, often inspired by classic movies. We also won an Academy Award for our animated short film, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. We are really excited for everyone to see our newest animated short film, The Numberlys, on TCM this Sunday, July 19 right after a screening of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, which was the inspiration for our film.
A member of the AMA team is helping us out today. We can’t wait to answer your questions! Ask away!

UPDATE: We have to go now! Don't forget to tune in tonight to TCM for TCM Movie Camp 8p ET / 7p CT. We're showing Metropolis in it's entirety paired with the world television premiere of our Moonbot short The Numberlys.
BO: I'm really proud by all the questions about Rise of the Guardians, and if Dreamworks is too busy we'd be happy to make it for them.
WJ: This is really fun talking to everybody, and it's very exciting to hear all the support that we have out in the real world. We're just a little start up and we're trying to do big things. Everybody's questions made us feel 10 feet tall today.
