About The Boxtrolls (In Theaters September 2014):
LAIKA’s third film is The Boxtrolls, based on Alan Snow’s bestselling novel Here Be Monsters. Introducing 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, these soft-boiled detectives uncover the hidden connections in Eggs’ past and devise a daring plan to save his unique family.

About ParaNorman (2012):
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.

About Coraline (2009):
Coraline was the first stop-motion feature to be conceived and photographed in stereoscopic 3D. Written and directed by Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach), Coraline is based on a novel by Neil Gaiman.

Mass Sketching Session with Vaibhav & Chetan

Please bring your sketchpads and some 6B pencils for an inspiring and fun sketching session with the Masters.

Making of ‘Return of the Jungle’

Vaibhav Kumaresh will take the audience behind the scenes of his WIP film: ‘Return of the Jungle’ and will be presenting peeks into the animatics, songs, play blast line ups, as well as some finished clips.

Vaibhav says, “At Vaibhav Studios, we have been producing short format content for a decade now. There’s no doubt we thoroughly enjoyed the process and i am glad our audiences enjoyed our films too! However the urge to tell longer stories had been growing on us for a long time. Return of the Jungle is our attempt to satisfy that urge. Considering the series of flops we have had in the past, I know its a bad time to venture into longer format original Indian animated content. However, telling your own story is the only way ahead. And if we don’t do it, who will? :)

I plan to share this very philosophy of ours with the festival audience. We’ll be sharing everything we have done so far on the project in as nutshell a manner as possible. My I hope all this will lead into a healthy discussion with the audience at the end!”

Behind the Scenes of ‘Swami Ayyappan’

Chetan Sharma will present the making of his WIP film: ‘Swami Ayyappan’ and show the character design process, storyboarding and animatic of key sequences/ layout along with background design.

Chetan says, “The intention behind the presentation is to share the inner workings of the movie making process… to not only debunk the myths but also initiate the audience into the mysteries of animated filmmaking. An art that is only learnt through persistently doing it… doing it… and doing it some more!

We will share our own paths that are different and yet have so much in common as well. How we have translated our love and passion for animation will be easily understandable with the behind the scenes material.  We hope to transfer some of the joy we feel making animation films and maybe have an exchange of ideas with the audience about the shape of things to come.”

Speakers: Chetan Sharma (Animagic India) and Vaibhav Kumaresh (Vaibhav Studios)
Date: 8th February 2014
Time: 10:30 am to 5 pm
