  • Henry Selick's new studio, Cinderbiter Productions

    Their first film will be titled, 'Shademaker'. Here's a bit from a job posting:
    Cinderbiter is looking for a storyboard lead/supervisor for a new stop-motion feature helmed by Henry Selick (Coraline, The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach.)

    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

    There's a surprise. Not.

    When Selick left LAIKA, it was inevitable that major talent would follow him out the door.

    I think Lou definitely qualifies.

      Disney Moves into the Mission

      A former chocolate factory at 16th and Folsom is now home to a movie crew working on an animation film for Disney, according to Koala Moredo, the production coordinator.

      The 100,000 square foot property at the corner at 2000 Folsom has been empty since April, 2009 when Joseph Schmidt stopped melting chocolate into egg-shaped truffles.

      At the time, the chocolate factory employed 100 workers, many of them from the neighborhood. The new tenants, who call themselves “Shademaker Productions” will include around 150 employees, according to a document filed with the SF Planning Department.

      Many are from the same crew that made James and the Giant Peach and Coraline, an employee said. The latter was made at a SOMA studio.

      A SF Planning Department letter dated November 3 quoted from Shademaker’s request for a zoning determination. In that request, the company says it specializes “in creating 1/5 scale sets and puppets which are shot on a 30,000 sq. ft. stage.

      “We fabricate all aspects of the production, including the skeletons inside the puppets, the bodies, costumes, props and sets.”

      They envisioned a total of 150 employees, “mostly fabricators and camera teams.”

      The Planning Department ruled in favor of the move.

      Shademaker Productions, incorporated in June, has the same Burbank address as Disney Internet. Moredo confirmed it was part of Disney.

      Shademaker is also the working title of the crew’s new film. When asked what the animation style would be like, another employee said “think Gumby” – referring to the green clay humanoid television star created in the 1950s.

      Cartoonbrew, a blog following the industry, referred to the company as Cinderbiter, but Moredo said it was the same group. “We were kind of schizophrenic,” he said.

      The December 20th blogpost, said the team will include Eric Leighton and “the celebrated production designer, Lou Romano. That’s right! Lou Romano!”

      The 38-year-old Romano has worked on nearly 50 films including Up, The Incredibles and Monsters, Inc., according to IMDB.
