Inside The LAIKA Ingenuity:
An Unparalleled Hybrid

 

Video Details

Sponsored by: LAIKA

The synthesis of creation at Oregon-based LAIKA is intoxicating.  Animators meticulously manipulate handmade puppets frame by frame, each movement seamlessly enhanced by award-winning visual effects and 3D printed artistry.  For ten years, the Oregon-based studio has earned global acclaim for its unprecedented fusion of stop-motion and computer graphics.  Georgina Hayns (Creative Supervisor, Puppet Fabrication), Steve Emerson (VFX Supervisor) and Brian McLean (Director of Rapid Prototype) will discuss their interdepartmental relationships throughout the making of the studio's three Oscar-nominated features: The Boxtrolls (2014), ParaNorman (2012), and Coraline (2009).
