Coraline B-roll

The more behind the scenes stuff you see from Laika the more your mind is blown! It’s unreal what these guys can do. I can’t wait to see Box Trolls, their next film. Unfortunately I can’t embed the video, but follow the link below it’s incredible!

On set…

Getting Trip into position last Friday. We had a good week of shooting, was nice to be reiminded how much I love stop-motion, it can be so much fun when you get into the flow of it. Hopefully will be able to iron out some of the problems I encountered this week. Looking forward to getting back in my black box tomorrow morning!

Leg break…

So, this happened right at the beginning of the week…but it actually was very fortunate because I was accepting the fact I had accidentally made the right leg a little longer than the left, so I could file it down and make sure the threaded ball joint screwed all the way on this time. Once I fixed him up, off we went starting with the end scene. I can’t tell you how much I love this armature! It’s so brilliant to animate with, makes a huge difference, it has weight and brings personality and flexibility beyond what I anticipated. Totally worth the money. And so, the following day…
