The new trailer for the film I've been working on with Laika Entertainment, The Boxtrolls, is now available! It is exclusively featured on iTunes and not only shows footage from the film, but a unique behind-the-scenes look at the process of making the movie. I hope you enjoy it and we'll see you in theaters September 2014!
OK, this might be the last blog post of the day - no promises though!
I have been hard at work with LAIKA yet again to help with another stop motion animated feature film! It's called The Boxtrolls, here's what it's about:
The film tells the story of an orphaned boy named Eggs (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) who was raised by underground cave-dwelling trash collectors called the Boxtrolls. The Boxtrolls are targeted by an evil exterminator named Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley), and Eggs has to save his friends from that evil exterminator.
It's going to be an awesome film and we're all really excited about it. The only bad part is that it doesn't come out for another year. But to hold you over until then, here is the official teaser trailer!

The teaser trailer for ParaNorman, the movie I have been working on with LAIKA for the past year is finally here! You can also see the poster for the film above. And now for the trailer:
Here is the official synopsis of the film from laika.com:
A misunderstood boy who can speak with the dead takes on ghosts, zombies and, worst of all, grown-ups, in order to save his town from a centuries-old curse.
Norman Babcock is an outcast in his small New England town. When a horde of zombies is unleashed on the populace, Norman learns he must use his paranormal powers to make things right again. That’s not an easy task when you’re only eleven. And you’ve just been grounded.
