This Spring our New York office presented An Animation Showcase: From Celluloid to CGI, an animation series that took place April 24 – May 29, 2015.  Aimed at highlighting the techniques that make up the craft of animation, the program used a variety of panels and screenings to explain and explore hand-drawn, stop-motion and CGI animation.

The series opened with a presentation featuring the animation studio LAIKA’s creative team behind the Academy Award-nominated Coraline (2009), ParaNorman (2012) and The Boxtrolls (2014).  The showcase also included a conversation with members of Blue Sky Studios about their CGI work, a program on the history of silent animation in New York and closed with a sneak preview of Disney-Pixar’s Inside Out.
