LAIKA President Travis Knight Does The B-Movies Podcast!
He’s a giant in the world of animation, and now he’s on The B-Movies Podcast! Travis Knight is the President of LAIKA, the animation studio that brought you Coraline, ParaNorman and The Boxtrolls, and their latest fantasy – Kubo and the Two Strings – is his feature directorial debut. It’s an ambitious stop-motion animated family feature about a young boy with a magic guitar who teams up with a monkey and a beetle samurai to collect pieces of magic armor, and somehow it’s also one of the most believable family stories of the year.
Your host William Bibbiani sits down with Travis Knight on this very special bonus episode to talk about LAIKA’s past, present and future, his new film Kubo and the Two Strings, and the ongoing issue of diversity in Hollywood. Find out what goes on behind LAIKA’s doors in this exciting, hour-long interview, the kind The B-Movies Podcast offers all year round!
