The Boxtrolls (2014) | Behind the Scenes

via Animation Magazine:

  • 1 week; the average amount of time for an animator to complete 3.7 seconds of footage
  • 3.5 inches, the cuff-to-cuff measurement of baby Eggs’ sweater (created on an embroidery machine to produce irregular lines, like a hand-knitted garment). His little socks are only ⅝” long
  • 4 scenes per week was the goal for each animator
  • 14 different fabrics were used in Lord Portley-Rind’s white hat
  • 24 kinds of weeds were created for backgrounds by the greens department
  • 55 different sculpts of prop cheeses were made; different scale sizes were needed for wide, medium and close shots

The 7th image… oh do they animate water so that the wave lights animate alongside the character animation?? Is that some 3D printed water right there that they switch out over and over??? A light projection thru glass? Dying to know how it works. Everything about how Laika makes movies is real actual magic

New Rainbow Brite cartoon in the works





Not sure if I should be dreading or happy considering how the Jem and the Holograms movie is truing out but this isn’t live action, so there’s hope.

Some here make me feel okay about this happening.

Jem, MLP, Rainbow Brite, Popples!? Okay now Lady Lovely Locks. Let’s go.

dude if this isn’t being made by Brianne Drouhard I want no part in it

omg. I had a soft toy of that white fluffy thing with the red nose as a child/ I didnt even know it was from a thing! I thought it was just some random weird looking kids toy.
