As an 8-year-old boy, Brandon Oldenburg was a sponge soaking up all kinds of pop culture. Like just about everyone else on the Planet Earth in 1984, he and his brother were particularly fascinated by Michael Jackson – so much so that they produced their own “Beat It” video. Decades later, Oldenburg would cross paths with the King of Pop at a major turning point in both of their lives.
Brandon Oldenburg is no stranger to the spotlight. A founding partner at Moonbot Studios in Shreveport, he won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 2012 for his work on the film The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. In addition to his great story, this podcast also includes an interview with Oldenburg about growing up with a uniquely creative dad.
