The Boxtrolls clip "Where's Eggs?"
 
01:02
The Boxtrolls is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, EGGS (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright), since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous pest exterminator ARCHIBALD SNATCHER (Acadamy Award winner Ben Kingsley) who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kind-hearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and an adventurous rich girl WINNIE (Elle Fanning) to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese. http://www.theboxtrolls.com/ Cast: Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley, Simon Pegg, Richard Ayoade, Nick Frost, Jared Harris, Tracy Morgan Directed by: Anthony Stacchi, Graham Annable Producer/ Lead Animator: Travis Knight Producer: David Ichioka Visit www.skwigly.com

Lightbox: Luc Chamberland, director of "Seth's Dominion" (National Film Board of Canada)
 
08:23
In this episode Skwigly talk to Luc Chamberland, whose wealth of industry experience spans shorts, feature films and, more recently, animated documentaries. His first short "Mr. Rivet", produced with the Animation Workshop, was a festival success in 2004 and, following 2011’s "Saga City" (an NFB-produced short dealing with intertwined environmental and urban issues) Chamberland recently finished the long-in-the-making feature documentary "Seth’s Dominion". This latest film explores the life and work of Canadian comic artist Seth, known for his long-running series "Palookaville" and the graphic novels born from it, including 1996’s Ignatz Award-winning "It’s A Good Life, If You Don’t Weaken", "The G.N.B. Double C", "Wimbledon Green" and the ongoing "Clyde Fans". Eschewing the typical approach to documentary filmmaking, Chamberland has endeavoured to create an altogether more immersive and engaging profile of the subject, combining live-action footage with animated interpretations of Seth’s work, perfectly retaining the artist’s 1930s-informed style. The film won for Best Feature at the Ottawa International Animation Festival and will have its UK debut this coming weekend at Toronto's prestigious Hot Docs International Documentary Festival.

Lightbox: Yoni Goodman, Animation Director of 'The Congress' & 'Waltz With Bashir'
 
06:38
In this episode of 'Lightbox' acclaimed Israeli Animation Director Yoni Goodman discusses his work on the award-winning films 'Waltz With Bashir' & 'The Congress' (directed by Ari Folman). Starring 'House of Cards' actor Robin Wright as a version of herself the Hollywood studio system has grown to find fickle and intolerable, 'The Congress' envisions a world where retired performers are able to be digitally scanned so that their CG likenesses can be animated in whatever roles the studios wish them to play. After Wright agrees to the process so that she can focus on raising her ailing son, we fast-forward 20 years into the future where the Futurist Congress is taking place and a plan to lull society into a hallucinogenic stupor is underway. The Toon Boom animated film, also starring Paul Giamatti, Harvey Keitel and Danny Huston as the brilliantly villainous studio exec Jeff, is loaded with homages to the dawn of animation, is a metaphysical tale of societal dissolution loosely based on Stanisław Lem's book 'The Futurological Congress'. Yoni Goodman's career also includes the Folman-directed documentary series 'The Material That Love Is Made Of' and several short films 'Closed Zone', 'The Gift' and 'The Story of Cholera'.

Lightbox: Oscar Winner Chris Landreth (National Film Board of Canada)
 
04:59
Chris Landreth speaks with Skwigly about his latest film 'Subconscious Password', which received much acclaim following its 2013 release. Produced for the National Film Board of Canada, the film uses Landreth's trademark uncanny, self-dubbed "Psychorealism" approach to CG animation, established in prior films such as "The Spine" and the Oscar-Winning "Ryan" (an animated documentary based on Landreth's interactions with fellow filmmaker Ryan Larkin). "Subconscious Password" tells of a potentially awkward encounter at a party where Charles (played by Landreth in pixilation) struggles to remember the name of his acquaintance John (played by "Courage, the Cowardly Dog" creator John R. Dilworth). We follow Charles's internal struggle as his subconscious plays out the dilemma as though it were an episode of the gameshow "Password". Interspersed throughout the film are all manner of different animation techniques and ingeniously recycled footage as Charles calls upon key figures and influences from popular culture and his own life to help him remember. Amongst its accolades, "Subconscious Password" won the main short film Cristal at Annecy 2013 and will be screening at this year's Bristol Encounters Short Film Festival.

08:38
Cordell Barker makes his welcome return to animated shorts this year with his first stop-motion endeavour, "If I Was God..." Shot stereoscopically, the film is a quasi-autobiographical musing on the director's memories of school. The young Cordell hopes to one day yield Godlike powers to get his own way, triggered by an incident during a dissection class. Skwigly went behind the scenes at the National Film Board of Canada's English Animation Studio in Montreal to take a look at the various production methods the film boasts as well as glean some insight from the director himself. Alongside a strong commercial career, Cordell's previous film work includes the 1988 classic short "The Cat Came Back", 2002's "Strange Invaders" (both of which nominated for an Academy Award) and the Genie Award-winning "Runaway" (2009). This latest film will be playing at major festivals throughout the year including Annecy this week.

Lightbox: BAFTA-winning Brothers McLeod - Interview with '365' director Greg McLeod
 
08:41
In the latest episode of Lightbox, Skwigly talks to Greg of The Brothers McLeod who, along with his writing brother Myles, have been a staple of the UK animation scene for sometime. On top of high profile commissioned work including the BAFTA-nominated/Webby award-winning 'Art Sparks' for Tate Kids and the BAFTA-winning 'Quiff & Boot', the creative duo boast a rich filmography of their own work including 'Phone Home', 'The Moon Bird', the BAFTA-nominated 'Codswallop' and the upcoming animated travelogue 'Marfa'. Their most recent project to make a major splash has been the much-acclaimed '365', in which Greg committed to producing one second of animation every day throughout 2013, posting the results over social media and grouping each set in chronological order by month. Since the project ended the assortment of disconnected, bizarre and often humorous vignettes were combined to make a standalone film that has since picked up multiple awards and screened at festivals including last year's Annecy. You can learn more about the work of Greg McLeod in our extended podcast interview at http://www.skwigly.co.uk/podcasts/skwigly-animation-podcast-22/ You can see more work from the Brothers McLeod at http://www.brothersmcleod.co.uk/ Lightbox is a regular strand of mini animation documentaries brought to you by Skwigly Online Animation Magazine http://www.skwigly.com Produced, presented & edited by Ben Mitchell Footage courtesy of Greg McLeod
Lightbox: Philippe Vaucher, director of 'The Well' & 'The Song Catcher'
 
06:49
Skwigly talks to Montreal-based artist, animator and director Philippe Vaucher about the making of his latest salt-on-glass short film "The Well" ("Le puits"). Philippe Vaucher has directed animated films for over ten years. His unique animation style blends traditional artistic mediums with digital technologies, on both his artistic and commercial projects. His technical innovations originally developed on "The Song-Catcher" ("Chasse papillon", 2001, N.F.B.) were discussed in Maureen Furniss’s "The Animation Bible" (2008). Vaucher’s animated films enable him to constantly explore new themes and techniques. His filmography includes two short films and three music videos; one of which was produced while living in the UK, where he worked and obtained a Masters Degree in Media from the University of the West of England in Bristol. Upon his return to Quebec in 2007, he was the lead animator and digital painter on the feature film: "Dédé à travers les brumes" (Jean-Philippe Duval, 2009). Notably, he was also artistic director of the animation sequences in Paule Baillargeon's feature biopic: "In Pieces" ("Trente tableaux"). "The Well" will screen at the 2014 Ottawa International Animation Festival later this month.
