    Review: The Boxtrolls delights with a witty script and superb stop motion animation

    VENICE - If you liked "The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists!," the "Wallace & Gromit" films, anything by Monty Python or just funny, witty movies in general, make sure you catch Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi's "The Boxtrolls." Based on the book "Here Be Monsters" by Alan Snow, I can't remember the last time I saw a family animation so visually rich, tightly scripted and charmingly performed which was also built on a sound and progressive message. It's unlikely to become a cultural juggernaut on the level of something like "Frozen," but I think it is as enjoyable.

    The panel for this @ SDCC was a highlight for me. The footage was spectacular and I honestly cannot wait to see it.

    Numbercrunching The Box-Trolls - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movie, TV News

    The new animated movie, The Boxtrolls, from the makers of Coraline and Paranorman have a few statistics they would like to share with you…

    An animator typically took 1 week to complete 3.7 seconds’ worth of footage, which is just under 90 individual frames
    The movie was made utilising 56 cameras and 892 lights including 68 fluorescent fixtures
    190 puppets were built for The Boxtrolls
    79 sets were built for the movie, and there are 26 unique locations in the story; these were crafted by 13 model builders, 12 carpenters, 9 scenic painters, 8 set dressers, and 4 greens artists
    200 costumes were made for the movie
    There are 14 different fabrics in Lord Portley-Rind’s hat
    Mixing puppets and CG, the ballroom set hosted 150 Cheesebridgeians
    Over 53,000 individual face parts were 3D-printed; of those, 15,000 were Eggs’
    Eggs had over 1,400,000 possible facial expressions
    Eggs’s sweater(s) used 233 yards of threads hand-dyed in varying colour tones
    The movie’s smallest costumes were for Eggs as a toddler: the sweater, measuring 3.5” from cuff to cuff across the length of both arms and chest, and the socks measuring 5/8” long
    Snatcher had over 1,180,000 possible facial expressions
    Winnie had over 600,000 possible facial expressions
    The White Hat ladies’ ballroom dresses each had 8-10 hoops linked together by concertina wires, which sounds musical and ethereal but is barbed and dangerous
    CG humans are in 185 shots of the movie
    CG Boxtrolls are in 131 shots of the movie
    The Mecha-Drill stood @5’ tall, weighed over 75 pounds, and was made of over 600 metal, plastic, and steel pieces; the 5 full ones created, out of 8 total, are the biggest stop-motion puppet rigs ever built
    The stop-motion flames “burning” in the furnace of the Mecha-Drill are courtesy of a working iPad displaying a loop video inside the “mouth” of the device
    3 iterations of Snatcher’s truck were built
    The river running through the sewer scene where Eggs climbs the ladder was in fact handmade; a rig holding a 4’x2’ pane of shower glass passed over a nest of white aluminium fishing-line wire, tiny pieces of mirror and mylar, and coloured masking tape to perfect the illusion of a watery surface – creating rippling liquid without actual liquid
    More than 20,000 props were handmade for the movie
    55 different sculpts of prop cheeses were created for The Boxtrolls
    24 different types of weeds were manufactured by greens artists
    The movie’s smallest prop was the tiny sewing thread and needle
    The vinyl record was approximately 2” across, with its label being approximately 0.25”
    The name of the musical group on the label on the vinyl record is Quattro Sabatinos, named after The Boxtrolls director Anthony Stacchi’s young son, Sabatino
    The following amounts of materials were used or consumed during production:
    80 pounds of hot melt glue sticks
    96 cubic feet of gold urethane foam
    898 cans of spray paint
    1,000 sheets of sandpaper
    2,000 tongue depressors
    2,896 feet of 24’s
    2,904 doughnuts
    4,000 X-Actblades
    6,928 feet of 14’s
    12,000 cotton balls
    35,488 square feet of plywood
    The faces for all characters are now permanently housed in LAIKA’s face library, which currently numbers over 1,300 archival boxes of nearly 53,000 faces

    All of this Box Trolls talk made me realize I never saw ParaNorman.
    Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.

    Bender Meets Homer in First SIMPSONS/FUTURAMA Crossover Image Nerdist

    With its Futurama-ized title sequence, the “Simpsorama” episode will serve as a proper sendoff to the oft-cancelled series, according The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean. He explained “They were going off the air, so I thought people would really love it if we had one more chance to see those characters.” Jean added that there would be plenty of cross-series in-jokes, including one where someone finally calls out the similarities between Homer and Bender’s heads (“Like, they just erased Homer’s hair,” Jean jokes).
    Aw man...looks like it's really over.
