Paranorman is a new 3D, stop-motion animated film by Oregon-based LAIKA. The studio used 3D printing to help the 62 characters display a wide range of emotions – creating over 31,000 potential faces to help the film appear even more realistic.
This serves as a great example of how 3D printing will be scaled through the entertainment industry and used by future animators – becoming a vital part of the production process.

This is an online collaborative project from Aaron Koblin and Chris Milk. Produced by Tate and Google, and about to be installed at Tate Modern, it allows people to create their own animations.
The drawings created by individuals are automatically combined to form trees with each other, and harnesses Google Chrome’s HTML5, Java Script, Google App Engine and Google Cloud Storage.
The Exquisite Forest is a lovely way to get people involved in animation, as well as championing crowd-sourced and collaborative projects.
