Congratulations to LAIKA, who are celebrating their 10th Anniversary this month. LAIKA has continued to hold it’s own over the last decade, producing animated features that are works of art in their own right – beginning in 2009 with “Coraline“, “ParaNorman“, “The Boxtrolls“, and currently in production, “Kubo and the Two Strings“.
President and CEO, Travis Knight, said it best when he talked to Wired Magazine, “We’re an outlier. We work in an industry that is dominated by franchises and sequels and prequels and remakes and reboots, but we’re devoted to telling new and original stories. We live in a modern, glossy, high-tech digital world. But we make movies in the most moth-eaten, anachronistic way possible. By using our hands.”
LAIKA has employed hundreds of artists and technicians over the years, and together they have been nominated for many awards for their creations, including the Annies, Academy Awards, Golden Globes, BAFTA and PGA. We applaud the amazing work you do, congratulations LAIKA!
