I am definitely going to be sticking my hat in this pot and gona try to make it on the team.
The fact that you did shots on Paranorman that made it to promotional trailers (meaning stuff to entice people into the theater) will probably work in your favor.
in fact shadow is working right now on a stopmo feature that has a Super HIGH level of visual quality
Is that Cinderbiter, something else, or a secret?
Ha! well.... I sure hope so.....
Nope...Cinderbiter is in San Fran- and thats Henry Selicks place...they are doing some awesome new films too!!
Shadow machine is an LA based studio.....the did mainly TV untill their recent FILM- Hell and Back
There is some more newer info on this here http://collider.com/guillermo-del-toro-pinocchio-rise-of-the-guardi...
The maquettes that you see here were done at Mackinnon And Saunders though Im not sure how much involvement they will have now that it is being done at shadowmachine. Either way, exciting times!!
So... a while back I heard production on this had stopped, is this rumour true? :(
