Oregon-based LAIKA is a renowned feature animation studio that has inspired audiences with an unprecedented visual artistry. Animators breathe life into meticulously hand-crafted puppets on handmade sets. Visual effects artists seamlessly enhance performances with cutting-edge technologies. This unparalleled fusion of stop-motion and computer graphics has garnered the studio three Oscar nominations (The Boxtrolls-2014, ParaNorman-2012 and Coraline-2009) and worldwide acclaim. The studio’s fourth feature, Kubo and the Two Strings, will open in theaters nationwide on August 19, 2016. In this session, Mark Shapiro will discuss LAIKA's creative, collaborative process, using rarely seen images and time-lapses.
