8. How Will Vinton Lost His Studio to a Rapper Named Chilly Tee

Laika does amazing work as an animation studio, no doubt about it, but the studio's history is somewhat less admirable. The company was built on top of Will Vinton's eponymous Portland studio in a shrewd corporate takeover by billionaire Nike co-founder Phil Knight. After Knight took control of the company in 2002, he placed his son Travis Knight, a failed rapper named Chilly Tee with little experience in animation, in charge of the entire company.

22. LAIKA/house Signs Carlos Andre Stevens To Director Roster

LAIKA/house, the commercial arm of ParaNorman production studio LAIKA, announced today that they’ve added Carlos Andre Stevens to their directing roster. Stevens was most recently a director/creative director at LOGAN/NY, and prior to that worked at Seattle-based Süperfad.

In the press release announcing his arrival, Stevens said that his decision to move to LAIKA was based partly on the city’s lifestyle amenities:

“New York City was terrifically fun, but I need more nature. I was a competitive downhill and freestyle skier growing up, so I love the fact that I can be at the beach, in lush forests and on snow-capped mountains in less than a two-hour drive from Portland. Skiing ignited a passion for risk-taking that I continue to seek out in both my professional and personal life. The quality of life in Portland enriches creativity.”

His reel and various commercials directed by him can be seen on LAIKA’s website.
