Over the past few weeks and months I have been sharing my visit to LAIKA to learn about the Boxtrolls movie!
Today I am excited to talk about the anatomy of a stop motion film set, specifically The Boxtrolls Movie set. The first thing I have to say is I was amazed at how big the sets are.
For some reason I pictured teeny tiny sets that were maybe a couple of feet tall with miniature puppets. Well I was completely wrong!
Some of the sets were 10-15 feet tall! The puppets range in size from a few inches to close to over a foot tall.
To help give you an idea of just how big the sets are. Check out this group picture taken in front of one of the sets….
