They two created an animated short film based on Joyce's screenplay "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore" and won the Academy Award for "Best Animated Short" in 2012. This year, Oldenburg's newest animated and live action series, "Lost Ollie" will debut on Netflix with Mary J. Blige and Leslie Odom Jr.


DeMarcus Ware:

Ware, a native of Auburn, Alabama, battled back from impossible odds from injuries during his time on the field to record an NFL record number of sacks for the Dallas Cowboys and win Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos in 2016. He committed to help others achieve their highest sense of self and wellness through his own brand of body resistance conditioning workouts which he teaches at his gym 3Volt Fitness in Trophy Club. He recently worked with Avondale to donate 1500 pairs of shoes to children in Northwest ISD.
