Nominated for an Oscar® and a BAFTA for Best Animated Feature Film, ParaNorman is a comedy thriller.
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.
In total, 60 puppet-makers created 61 characters; there were 178 individual puppets made.
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.
While in the Other World, Coraline encounters a cat that she has only recently met in the Real World. The enigmatic animal has the ability to move between the two worlds –- but only speaks in one.
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.
