A company unveils the technology behind the newly released adventure story that is sure to appeal to adults and children alike.
Coraline, a film adaptation of the novella under the same title, is a story of a young girl who unlocks a mysterious door and enters into an exciting world of alternative reality. And the company who made her journey possible is Objet Geometries which was the creative power behind many of the stop-motion animations of the movie''s characters and sets.
"Our 3-D printing technologies enabled the filmmakers to create the most visually captivating stop-motion film ever made," said Amit Shvartz, vice president of marketing for Objet Geometries.
He also stressed the time and cost-effectiveness of the company''s technology.
Objet technology allowed the movie''s creators to print with extreme precision thousands of high-quality 3-D models, ranging from facial expressions to prop silverware to doorknobs. Computer-aided design drawings served as the blueprint.
Coraline - which was described by one critic as "[pushing] the envelope of animated moviemaking while tugging at the heart" - opened in theaters nationwide on February 6 and earned $16.8 million during its first weekend.
