As part of its year-round programming, the Breckenridge Film Festival hosted a behind-the-scenes presentation of stop-motion animation at the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center on Thursday, Feb. 26. Mark Shapiro, marketing and brand manager at Laika animation studio, brought several original puppets from the Academy Award-nominated movie “The Boxtrolls,” which he used to demonstrate how puppeteers and animators move the dolls centimeters at a time to create the unique technique used to make that film, along with others such as “ParaNorman” and “Coraline.” A large audience of children and adults turned out for the presentation.
