The Boxtrolls (2014) | Behind the Scenes

via Animation Magazine:

  • 1 week; the average amount of time for an animator to complete 3.7 seconds of footage
  • 3.5 inches, the cuff-to-cuff measurement of baby Eggs’ sweater (created on an embroidery machine to produce irregular lines, like a hand-knitted garment). His little socks are only ⅝” long
  • 4 scenes per week was the goal for each animator
  • 14 different fabrics were used in Lord Portley-Rind’s white hat
  • 24 kinds of weeds were created for backgrounds by the greens department
  • 55 different sculpts of prop cheeses were made; different scale sizes were needed for wide, medium and close shots

The 7th image… oh man..how do they animate water so that the wave lights animate alongside the character animation?? Is that some 3D printed water right there that they switch out over and over??? A light projection thru glass? Dying to know how it works. Everything about how Laika makes movies is real actual magic

It looks like it might be glad plate, and for each frame they would just trade it out for the next plate and the next

This sculpture is by Marco d’Agrate, 1562 (Duomo cathedral, Milan-Italy)
This is a sculpture of St. Bartholomew who was an Apostle that was said to be skinned alive. If you look closely you will notice that his robe is actually not a robe at all, but his skin.

I’m both scared of, and amazed by this headhunting trophy. Judging by the size of the skull it’s a child’s skull. Decorated by the asmat tribes of Papa New Guinea and displayed as a warning to invading tribes. Collected in the 1950s by the previous owner from tribal leaders. This piece has already sold but if you are interested in tribal skulls please email me.

what site are you using? i’m using DuoLingo for French and Dutch right now and it’s working well for me

I started using Duolingo about a month ago and it’s pretty awesome. I have to say….

Duolingo’s French is a lot creepier than it’s Italian. I think you’ll like it a lot more the farther you get into it. 

Yeah, I’m not very far in French, only like level nine or so. I don’t have enough time right now to commit to the program with any degree of regularity.

I started using Duolingo about a month ago and it’s pretty awesome. I have to say. That’s actually where that creepy “you are mine until I die” nugget came from! When my little cousins came to visit, they started using it as well though and we were all yammering at each other in French. It was great. I know Italian though, so Duolingo is a great refresher. French, since I’m fairly new to it, has also been partnered with more traditional coursework and I’ve been using “Learn French with Vincent” on Youtube, username: imagiers. It’s great for the aural aspect and the pronunciations.

*takes notes of language skills* Good, our future documentary series will be multilingual. Bigger audience!
I also know Latin and a little bit of American Sign Language too (I love languages, I just wish I were better at them). But I think between the three of us, we’ll be good.

I’ve been trying to learn French and brush up on my Italian recently and I was just doing an Italian exercise when this sentence popped up:

Sei moi finché non muoio
"You are mine until I die."

I think this language exercise knows me too well.
