Clipping the Making of Anomalisa

Find out how stop-motion blurs the line between animation and live-action in the Oscar contending Anomalisa from Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson.

Paramount Pictures has released a new featurette, “Crafting Anomalisa,” that delves into the painstaking creation of the film. The crew at Starburns Industries made 1,261 faces and 1,000 props for the movie, and the final cut has 118,089 frames of handmade animation, which took three years to produce. Each animator working on the project had a goal of two seconds (48 frames) of animation per day.
