Digital Fabrication for Stop-Motion Animation

Join us to see LAIKA’s fusion of traditional fabrication techniques and modern technology in ParaNorman  

ParaNorman, Made in Portland

Rob Ducey will present the digital design and puppet fabrication process used on LAIKA’s first three films, with many images and examples from ParaNorman, the first stop-motion feature to employ a 3D color printer to create character facial animation — and the second stop-motion film (after Coraline) to be shot in 3D from the onset. The talk will focus on the use of various digital design and manufacturing tools at the studio.  Some parallels will be drawn between LAIKA techniques and more conventional CG productions. Highlights: ways these digital manufacturing tools have impacted design and production — and where it’s headed.  An explanation of how cutting edge technologies are used and the history of their development at the studio will also be presented. paraNorman faces

 

Production puppets will be on display.
