Kubo and the Two Strings / Laika

Monday, January 4th, 2016

While CG is indeed a refined animation technology, Hollywood is increasingly recognizing the power of stop-mo to subtly portray story, wordlessly engage emotion and directly transport us into fabulously crafted alter-realities that we can almost touch and feel. Laika, maker of Coraline, Paranorman and Boxtrolls, has once again taken on another jaw dropping project with this new 3D stop mo fantasy thriller for Focus Features, boasting a star-studded cast with Art Parkinson, Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes and Brenda Vaccaro. The film is set to release August 19, 2016. President of Laika and this film’s Director, Travis Knight, was also the lead animator on Coraline. Read on for some kind words on why he faithfully uses Dragonframe.

Emmy winning animator Brad Schiff gives a great video interview with Screenslam about process in general and the production particulars of the much anticipated “Boxtrolls”, for which he is supervising animation. The film will be hitting theaters on September 26, 2014. Hailing from Laika Studios, Schiff also boasts such cornerstone projects as “Corpse Bride”, “ParaNorman”, “Fantastic Mr. Fox” and “Coraline”…and for even more old school animating street cred, “Gary & Mike” and “Celebrity Deathmatch.”

Laika / The Boxtrolls

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

An early Christmas present from the powerhouse studios at Laika, makers of ParaNorman and Coraline. They’ve once again employed Dragonframe in crafting an enchanting alter-world, rife with detail, charm and absolutely top of the line animation. From the studio:

    “An orphaned boy raised by underground creatures called Boxtrolls comes up from the sewers and out of his box to save his family and the town from the evil exterminator, Archibald Snatcher. The Boxtrolls is coming to theatres September 2014.”

We simply can’t wait to unwrap this box, as we troll for new animation innovation—more behind the scenes to come!
