Studio Showcase #5 Laika

Laika has been growing since 2005 where they created theor forst short all-CG-animated film called Moongirl.

Since then they have made The Oscar and BAFTA-nominated film ParaNorman (2012)
Their first stop motion movie, Coraline (2009) broke them through with their stunning storytelling.
Their style and talent for making thousands upon thousands of replaceable faces is what also made them creating short movies of their characters almost building themselves again through stopmotion.
Their use of recipes and technology of printing the faces helped them carry on this beautiful style in their future films.

Their skills in storytelling and character performance in all mediums, including CG, stop motion which they demonstrate in the feature films so well. they're talents stretch further in their commercials, including 2D animation.

Following Laika closely ever since Coraline, this is where my ultimate dream job would be, helping them make the puppets and sets for their unbelievably beautiful films. Laika give the opportunity for graduates to become an intern for them. And the latest big film of theirs is The Boxtrolls that will premiere in the theatres September 26, 2014.
