The world of Coraline stop-motion animation puppets...

Here are some of the intricate stop-motion models from 2009's animated movie Coraline, brought to the big screen by The Nightmare Before Christmas director Henry Selick and the talented animators at Laika.

Photographed on display at Universal Studios Hollywood on June 21, 2010, the world of Coraline is painstakingly brought to life frame-by-frame by subtly manipulating the characters, sets and miniature props. There are twenty-four frames per second in a motion picture, and when all the frames are brought together sequentially the animated world comes to life.

In the same way that a live-action movie has to be properly lit, and its stars clothed and coiffed, the same applies for stop-motion animation.

If you're a fan of stop-motion animation be sure to check out even more Coraline puppets on display, plus models from the cinematic version of Fantastic Mr. Fox.
