There’s no other way around this mesmerizing epic story of the Hero Quest in the upcoming Kubo And The Two Strings animated movie by the LAIKA Studios. We were lucky to be introduced to the process of this magical movie-making, and meet with actors, director and the Japanese art representatives who were the inspiration and supporters during the filming of this animation movie.
Kubo’s quest will take him from the comfort of his home – and personal internal space – to the realms of the unknown, to those places and spaces where fear rules, and the only way out is saying NO to the own fear inside.
As in any Hero Quest, Kubo will have his supporters and protectors – Monkey and Beetle – to guide him through his quest and find a way to reconcile with the past and, most importantly, allow him to live in the present with the voice and presence he always dreamed about.
Using an innovative mix of Instagram grids, story-based video loops, and an annotated and interactive map of Kubo’s journey helped to amplify the film’s larger-than-life themes of magic, mythology, and heroism, this mind-boggling map will give users an emotional investment into Kubo’s quest before walking into the theater.
During our press conference with the makers and producers of The Kubo And The Two Strings movie at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, we were introduced to amazing artists who showcased their art of Japanese storytelling.
Each Origami structure may take hours to complete. When we asked the Origami professional how difficult it was to master the art, he simply said: The art of any Japanese art is in your patience to participate in it. Once you have it, it is easy. WOW. Judge by yourself how masterful these amazing Origami are!
