Connecting the New with the Timeless to Tell Enduring Stories

Founded in 2005, LAIKA has grown to occupy a unique and distinctive place in American cinema by continuously expanding the boundaries of the 120-year-old technique of stop-motion animation. We are a community of storytellers, artists, inventors, technicians and craftspeople from around the world, committed to fusing filmmaking’s state-of-the-art technologies with a handmade animation tradition as old as film itself. Our mission is to bring to the screen the kinds of emotional, innovative and exhilarating stories we as filmmakers loved growing up.

Soul Corps In Our Community

Soul Corps In Our Community

We are a caring community. We volunteer. We give back.

Our community outreach program, Soul Corps, provides financial and volunteer assistance to local nonprofits that directly support community enrichment where we live and work. When employees give to their organization of choice, LAIKA also gives by matching financial donations of up to $100 per employee every year. If you enjoy running, we reimburse race entrance fees when the race raises funds for a not-for-profit organization.

To encourage employees to volunteer, LAIKA correspondingly matches paid time off for the employee. We also facilitate a raffle for our used electronic equipment where all proceeds go to the organization of the winner’s choice.

Submissions Policy
