Laika’s The Boxtrolls opens in theaters today, but not only that….Coming soon will be a brand new podcast with the directors of The Boxtrolls, Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable along with lead Animator and Producer Travis Knight!!!!!  We know it’s been awhile, so we are super excited to bring you this podcast.  It should be up in the next week or two, that gives you plenty of time to see the film and come back and listen to how they made it.  I’m also personally very proud of this film, I’ve always dreamed of working with Laika on a project and over the winter I had that chance.  The Boxtrolls is a wonderful film and I’m really glad that I had the chance to work on it.  So go see the movie, come back here to tell us what you thought and stay tuned for our latest podcast!!

Kickstart The Sketchbook: An Animated Short Film

Animator Chris Williams has launched a kickstarter project for an animated short involving both 3D and hand drawn animation. The Sketchbook is an inspiring story about a 16 year-old enlisting in World War I to find his father.  It has a great story with a lot of heart.

Chris has worked in the industry for over 13 years on a number of feature films such as Spider Man, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, Wreck It Ralph, and is currently in production on Peanuts at Blue Sky Studios.  Being able to finish a high level short film in a reasonable amount of time with experienced artists requires a hefty budget so Chris is very realistic about the dollar amount he is asking for.  He has a number of talented artists(including Iron Giant story artist Bill Frake) already tied to the project so hopefully they’ll be able to get this thing going.  If any of you are interested in donating a few bucks or even just sharing the page with friends, that would be great!
