The Boxtrolls is a 3D stop-motion and CG hybrid animated feature based on Alan Snow’s best-selling fantasy adventure novel Here Be Monsters.
The Boxtrolls is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least that’s the legend residents have always believed.
Nominated for an Oscar® and a BAFTA for Best Animated Feature Film, ParaNorman is a comedy thriller.
A misunderstood boy who can speak with the dead takes on ghosts, zombies and, worst of all, grown-ups, in order to save his town from a centuries-old curse.
Norman Babcock is an outcast in his small New England town. When a horde of zombies is unleashed on the populace, Norman learns he must use his paranormal powers to make things right again. That’s not an easy task when you’re only eleven. And you’ve just been grounded.
ParaNorman was the first stop-motion movie to utilize a 3D Color Printer to create replacement faces for its puppets.
Coraline (2009) was the first stop-motion feature to be conceived and photographed in stereoscopic 3D. Written and directed by Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach).
The story of Coraline Jones and her adventure in the Other World is one that has crossed many avenues of storytelling – father to daughter, pen to paper, book to movie, studio set to 3D screen.
• For the character of Coraline, there were 28 identical puppets created.
Coraline entered pre-production in 2005. Art direction and storyboarding came first and storyboard supervisor Chris Butler oversaw the illustrators, visualizing every scene and character.
Moongirl (2005) is a fable that re-imagines lunar mythology. An animation festival regular, the film has captured a number of prestigious awards and honors.
