Years ago I was blown away by the magnificent big little details that went into making Coraline.

Of course stop motion animation isn't a thing of the past and continues to hold its own in a time of CGI.
Here I found a fascinating interview with Georgina Haynes a puppet maker from LAIKA. My goodness, how I would love to work with this company.
