The Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival is proud to announce its special guest line-up for this year's edition!

                                        ------  -  -----


LAIKA STUDIOS AND BEHIND-THE-SCENES OF THE BOXTROLLS


AIKA (Portland, Oregon USA) is, without a doubt, one of the most ambitious, creative, and courageous stop-motion studios in the world. They specialize in feature-length and short animated films, as well as commercials. The studio has produced two OSCAR NOMINATED stop motion films: ParaNorman (2012) and Coraline (2009).
 
During their special presentation, you will discover the remarkable creativity of LAIKA, with a look at their latest project The Boxtrolls (in theatres 26 Sept. 2014), and be able to meet the original puppets from the production.

For more information: www.laika.com




SPECIAL PRESENTATION OF ROBOT CHICKEN WITH ALEX KRAMER

Now in production of its seventh season, Robot Chicken has received remarkable world-wide success. In 2014, in order to grow its audience and charm local viewers, Teletoon aired the French version of the series during their adult programming. For the Festival’s 6th edition, we are excited to have Alex Kramer, director of animation on Robot Chicken, reveal the inner-workings of this popular series.

Alex Kamer graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in film and video. After graduation, Alex decided to pursue a career in animation. In 2005 he began to intern at Shadow Machine, working on the second season of Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken. Alex started working a stop-motion character animator on such shows as Robot Chicken, Moral Orel, Frankenhole, and Titan Maximum. Alex is currently the animation director on the seventh season of Robot Chicken at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. He also teaches character animation classes, and has directed episodes of Dinosaur Office and Mad’s Spy vs. Spy. In 2013 he wrote, directed, and animated his own film, The Well.

Come join us for what's sure to be another fantastic year with outstanding guests and films! See you all September 26th-28th, 2014!
