The name Henry Selick may or may not jump out at you, but we can assure you that you’re very much familiar with his incredible stop-motion work on new classics like Coraline, James and the Giant Peach, and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
According to the cats at Bleeding Cool and Cartoon Brew Selick has just opened a brand new film studio in San Francisco called Shademaker Productions (formerly Cinderbiter Productions), which has been described as a “new stop-motion company whose mandate is to make great, scary films for young ‘uns with a small, tight-knit crew who watch each other’s backs”.
Their first project? A film for Disney called Shademaker with veteran team members Eric Leighton and the celebrated production designer Lou Romano.
Look for more soon!
