I’ve always loved the art of stop motion. To me it’s almost like magic, whereby these actual dolls come to life, moving, singing and laughing. It’s an incredible feat of work and talent and the amount of preparation that goes into it, is truly astounding. That said, here’s a little snippet from the end credits of The Boxtrolls, which captures a tiny bit into the herculean amount of work that goes into making even one scene of stop motion animation. Enjoy!
About The Boxtrolls: A family event movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family
