Saw the Coraline movie trailer today, looks awsome. I have read the graphic novel by Neil Gaiman that this movie is based on and it sounds like a plausible idea. Apparently the stop-motion figurines used in the movie are created using a process called 3D printing. A computerised sprayer puts very fine layers of latex onto a rough model that are then each time set hard with a laser, creating a very subtle and well-made expressions and surfaces for the characters. Another movie Gaiman has had a hand in is MirriorMask, a surralistic movie about a young girl’s adventure into a paper world.
