The Boxtrolls – Let’s Dance:
Inside Laika – Jason Stalman:
A fantastic film that deserves a greater look at the depth and sheer creative force of the animators and artists that worked so hard to bring this film to life.
In an age of countless computer-generated box office hits coming out of Pixar, Disney and Dreamworks, many had feared that traditional styles of animation like stop motion would become obsolete.
But small studios like LAIKA have proven that stop motion animated films are not only commercially viable, but is an art form that’s still evolving, thanks to 3D printing, and some incredibly talented animators.
Films like the recently released “Kubo and the Two Strings” show how 3D printing is enabling animators to push the boundaries of stop motion animation.
Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA.
