The sequence, which centers on Other Mother morphing from her normal stage to her tall, lanky stage runs for 160 frames, or nearly 7 seconds and called for 78 replacement faces and more then 117 hairpieces. This effects shot was completed entirely in camera. · It took over 500 people and four years to complete the film. Principal photography took 18 months. · The Coraline production took place at the Laika studios, located in Hillsboro, Oregon in a 151140 square feet warehouse. 52 separate shooting units were created for the Coraline production. The shooting units were comprised of curtained-off areas where the sets were eventually set up, lit and shot. 150 total sets were created during the making of the film, but only 52 could be shot at the same time. · A ...
