Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi are the directors of The Boxtrolls, a 3D, stop animation film from Laika Entertainment. The film is based on Anthony Snow’s book Here Be Monsters. Annable and Stacchi adapted the boxtrolls characters from Snow’s book and called it The Boxtrolls.

In this podcast interview we spoke to Annable and Stacchi about how they transformed this “creative and crazy book” of Snow into a 90 minute film in 3D stop animation. They take us behind the scenes and help us understand how they used 3D printing to create their characters and the influence of various writers and illustrators like Charles Dickens to Hayao Miyazaki. And they share how  they got the “deliciously wicked” Sir Ben Kingsley to be part of their film.
