Dragon - United Airlines

Annie Award winner for best commercial. Stop motion with hinged paper puppets in upright miniature sets. We created this spot over many months of art and toil.

We shot with a Leica Digilux 2 and Dragon Stop Motion software.

Please take note of Kim Blanchette’s and Justin Kohn’s exceptional stop motion animation!

The English language trailer for ‘The Little Prince’ is finally here! 

And this version gives an even better glimpse of Jamie Caliri’s (DUCK Studios) gorgeous paper animation for the scenes from the book.

The film, directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda), has an all-star voice cast including James Franco, Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Benicio Del Toro, Marion Cotillard, and Paul Rudd.

It will be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this May.

I can’t believe that I only just found this today.  From Jamie Caliri’s website:

This piece was made as part of the development process for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.

They asked me to explore animation concepts. I thought it would be much more fun to actually shoot a section of the script to intertwine live action and animation. It was a fun surprise for the producers.

We shot in downtown LA.

Directed by Jamie Caliri.

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events may not have captured the essence of the books, but that INSANELY gorgeous production design and these stunning end credits consistently make me want to go to there.

I would love for them to remake the original (and continue the series) but as stop motion movies. Take a look at some behind-the-scenes shots of the sets, all of which were built on soundstages. Every. Single. One. Including the Lachrymose Lake scenes. Yeah. PD Porn.

Paper stop-motion animation. Stunning.

One of my favorite animators is Jamie Caliri. He’s done the title sequence to United States of Tara, Lemony Snickets, and has done some really great commercials. This video kind of shows his method. His work is truly wonderful. I hope someday I become just as good as Jamie.
