LAIKA: Hit Stop Motion Film Studio Celebrating 15 Years And 5 Films

Stop-motion film studio LAIKA is celebrating its 15th anniversary! Hit the jump to take a trip down memory lane and enjoy the hard work put into their their first five films all over again!

Since 2009, LAIKA film studios have been apart of bringing the unique and highly impressive skill of stop-motion animation back into the mainstream. Being a form of animation that isn't touched on very often, some of the most prominent classic works being The Nightmare Before Christmas, LAIKA has managed to bring to light its ability to tell compelling and entertaining stories, starting with its debut film Coraline, in 2009.

Since then, four more films have released, each with their own specific style and vibe that has earned itself multiple awards. Following Coraline was Paranorman, a supernatural family film that brought even more eyes to the studio. From there came The Boxtrolls and Kubo and the Two Strings; two very different films that have their own tone and style yet all in stop motion. 

Since its most recent release, Missing Link, last year, LAIKA has officially crossed the 15-year mark of making movie magic for audiences around the globe. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the studio has released a short film that celebrates its filmography and is even offering digital purchases of their films at a special discounted price so more people can watch it while at home! 

Here's to another 15 years of fabulous filmmaking and artistic skill! Make sure to check out the short video below and don't forget to share your thoughts in the comments below!


 

Fueled by the vision of its President & CEO Travis Knight, the animation studio LAIKA was founded in 2005.  Located just outside of Portland, Oregon, LAIKA was awarded a Scientific and Technology Oscar® plaque in 2016 for its innovation in 3D printing.  All of LAIKA’s five films: Coraline (2009), ParaNorman (2012), The Boxtrolls (2014) Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) and Missing Link (2019) were nominated for the Academy Award® for Outstanding Animated Feature.  Missing Link won the Golden Globe and Kubo and the Two Strings won the BAFTA Award for Best Animated Film and received an additional Oscar® nomination for Visual Effects.
