Housed in an existing 150,000 sq. ft. warehouse, Laika Entertainment has worked with TVA for the past nine years to expand and develop spaces that support the process of making stop motion films. The animation studios include a 50-seat executive screening room, a 3,000 sq. ft. viewing theatre for watching dailies, 11 editing suites for post-production sound engineering, and 112,000 sq. ft. of animation stages.
All puppet, set, and costume fabrication occurs on site; there are shops to accommodate wood and metal fabrications and open studios where artists paint and draw. Corporate office space is provided to support the business of film distribution. In 2015, phase II was initiated to add an additional 90,000 sq. ft. of space to house additional stage and studio space.
