RealD Honors Henry Selick, Laika and Focus Features With 1st Annual “RealD Innovation in 3D Award” at ShoWest

Honorees Recognized for Break-Through 3D Sensation Coraline
Today RealD, the world’s leading outfitter of 3D-enabled theatres, presented the first annual “RealD Innovation in 3D Award” to the creators of the feature film CORALINE for their extraordinary contribution to 3D cinema.  The award was presented by RealD chairman and CEO, Michael V. Lewis, at the RealD lunch in the Paris Ballroom at ShoWest.  Dale Wahl, vice chairman, accepted the award on behalf of animation studio LAIKA, Inc. and director/screenwriter Henry Selick’s acceptance speech was previously recorded.
 
“We created the ‘RealD Innovation in 3D Award’ to acknowledge those whose contributions to the 3D medium set a visionary new standard,” stated Michael V. Lewis, chairman and CEO of RealD.  “For their exceptional work on Coraline, we congratulate Henry, LAIKA, Focus Features and all who painstakingly worked on this magical film that invited audiences to step inside and experience first-hand a captivating new world.”
 
The “RealD Innovation in 3D Award” will be given annually to honorees that contribute to digital 3D and embody the pioneering and creative spirit the technology brings to life in cinema and other applications.  The inaugural award honorees each received a 3D motion hologram wall plaque by RabbitHole portraying scenes from the film Coraline.
 
LAIKA Vice-Chairman Dale Wahl said “Part of LAIKA’s mission statement is to contribute to the evolution of the animation art form so this honor is very thrilling.  We thank everyone at RealD for this distinction.”
 
“This is a lovely honor,” said Selick, whose other directing credits include The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach. “RealD is making a significant contribution to the way we make movies and I’m very grateful that they have acknowledged Coraline in this way.”
 
The first stop-motion animated feature ever produced from inception in 3D, Coraline has wowed audiences with its spectacular and whimsical worlds.  Released in February to enormous critical praise, Coraline has generated almost $74 million in domestic box office.  Based on the international best-selling and Hugo Award-winning novella by Neil Gaiman, Coraline tells the story of a young girl who encounters an alternate version of her life…wonderful at first but ultimately scary and perilous.  She must find the heroine within her in order to save herself and her family from dark forces.  The stellar voice cast includes Dakota Fanning, Teri Hatcher, Ian McShane, John Hodgman, Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French, Keith David, and Robert Bailey Jr.  Coraline is a LAIKA production distributed by Focus Features.  It is written for the screen and directed by Henry Selick.  Producers are Bill Mechanic, Claire Jennings, Henry Selick and Mary Sandell.
