Exclusive: The Art of Coraline with Henry Selick

by |


Henry Selick, the animation mastermind behind such Certified Fresh classics as The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach adds another gong to his cabinet with Coraline, based on the novella by Neil Gaiman. Its dark tale of a young girl who finds a portal into an alternate reality will please adults and children alike and it's both visually stunning and wondrously entertaining. Now, set against a gallery of stills from the production, Selick takes RT on an exclusive journey into the art of Coraline... "Coraline is kind-of relentless, like animators like me. She's going to get there one way or another and she's not going to be tied in place because her parents won't allow her to do something. She's going to find a way to get to what she wants."Back to Article
