Skeleton Girl and Twisted Tales Update

In celebration of the 5th anniversary of Skeleton Girl‘s New York premiere, our award-winning – and Canada’s first stereoscopic 3D and stop motion animated film – is now available for viewing in 2D on our You Tube channel here.

We’re also excited to announce that Skeleton Girl will be available shortly with sub-titles in Spanish, Mandarin, and French, and we’re considering other languages as well.

And, we are hard at work on the Twisted Tales for Demented Children trailer, as we move forward with the remainder of the stories. Photos here show part of the set and both Leo (director) and Alyssa (fabricator) prepping for the shoot.

If you’re interested in an exclusive behind the scenes feature on the making of Skeleton Girl, click here to purchase the Collector’s Edition DVD & Blu-Ray Combo Pack, which in addition to the film and behind the scenes feature, includes a pair of 3D glasses to watch the trailer in 3D as well as a limited edition Skeleton Girl button.

Muybridge motion studies used as reference for puppet shoes

Alyssa has been making shoes for the new puppet in Through the Looking Glass using Eadweard Muybridge’s motion studies as reference; since they are solid shoes they are made to force the puppet’s foot into a stepping shape instead of having the foot dictate how the shoe bends. They are made this way because they are the anchor points for the puppet; each shoe will have magnets mounted into the soles to hold the heel in place. This is the kind of minute detail we need to think about when we’re designing and building the puppets as they move through their scenes.


If you’re not familiar with Muybridge’s work, check it out. Born in 1830, Muybridge was an English photographer renowned for his pioneering work in photographic studies of motion and motion-picture projection. He is known for his work on animal locomotion in 1877 and 1878, which used multiple cameras to capture motion in stop-motion photographs.
