    Jeff Riley, Kubo and the Two Strings

    While stop motion animation is, in many ways, a completely different world, there are actually some surprising similarities with 3D animation as well! Still we had some questions, and Jeff Riley—animator for LAIKA’s Annie- and BAFTA-Award-winning, Oscar-nominated Kubo and the Two Strings—was kind enough to give us an in-depth behind-the-scenes peek at what it’s like to work in stop motion animation. Whew, that was a mouth-full list of awards. Go Kubo!
