Hillsboro’s Laika Studios An Important Part Of Future
Hillsboro, Oregon Laika Studios is a leader in the world of animation and their latest movie “Kubo and the Two Strings” was a joy to watch and wowed viewers all over the world getting the company its 4th Oscar Nomination at the 2017 Academy Awards.
The folks at Laika call Hillsboro home and we are so pleased to have them as an artistic center to our ever growing City. They make what are known as Stop-Action movies with each movie being made with huge puppets and incredibly intricate backdrops. The end result is unlike anything else. How great it is to have a group of talented people amongst us making Movies that will transcend space and time. Kubo was a wonderful story and visually it was stunning.
INTEL Corp. may be the world class computer chip company and the biggest name in the Valley but these folks at Laika measure up to the best in the entire world at what they do. The company employs about 200 talented men and women and these jobs have created demand for other jobs in the arts! This is a really great company to have here where Art is needed and valued!
Laika has made Coraline, The Box Trolls, Para Norman, and now Kubo and the Two Strings! The company has gorgeous studios right across from the Hillsboro Ball Park- right off US 26.
Platform Realty Group has assisted employees of Laika with real estate matters recently and have created the LAUNCH program offering some upgraded services at no cost for Laika Studios employees. We look forward to a long and successful relationship too!
Hillsboro’s Laika Studios is a very important part of our collective futures and we are so lucky to have the company here in Hillsboro, Oregon.
