Director Henry Selick Keynote

Henry Selick, director of the 3D, stop-motion animated film Coraline, is a featured keynote speaker during the 2009 NAB Show in Las Vegas. Speaking in an afternoon keynote today, Selick will offer NAB Show attendees his thoughts on how digital technology has helped to revitalize the handcrafted approach of stop-motion animation.
Distributed by Focus Features, Coraline offers audiences what Selick calls "a fully immersive three-dimensional movie-going experience." The first stop-motion animated feature to be shot entirely in stereoscopic 3D, Coraline opened in the U.S. on February 6 to lavish critical praise and already has generated over $40 million at the box office.
