Henry Selick

For some of you, the name Henry Selick may not seem too familiar at first read, but if you have ever seen THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, the wonderful JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, or CORALINE, then you should know that he directed all of them.

Selick is now the head of a brand new animation studio in San Francisco called Shademaker Productions, which was previously known as Cinderbiter Productions. What’s really great about this news is that the studio is now getting ready to work on their first film under the new moniker.

The film is going to be entitled SHADEMAKER (an ode to the previous studio name, no doubt) and, interestingly, the company recently posted a job recruitment ad that gives a little more insight into who else is behind the studio:

“Cinderbiter is a new stop-motion company whose mandate is to make great, scary films for young ‘uns with a small, tight-knit crew who watch each other’s backs. Joining Henry on Cinderbiter’s first production will be veteran team members Eric Leighton and the celebrated production designer, Lou Romano. That’s right – Lou Romano!”

Lou Romano has had his hand in great films such as THE INCREDIBLES, CARS, and RATATOUILLE. And, as we mentioned back in April, with Henry Selick also a part of Pixar, we can rest assured that this next film will be awesome.
