Maine animator had a hand in new release



 

GOULDSBORO — “Missing Link,” a stop-motion animated film about a lonely, lovable Sasquatch resembling a giant, apelike pine cone, who enlists a pompous British explorer to guide and help him find his missing relatives in Shangri La, opens this weekend April 12-14 in cinemas across the nation and world.

Prospect Harbor’s Adam Fisher, who grew up in the Gouldsboro village and is the son of Dick and Cindy Fisher, is among Laika Studios’ animators (“Coraline,” “The Boxtrolls…”) who brought to life the gentle, well-spoken bigfoot and other colorful characters to life in “Missing Link.” A 1997 Sumner Memorial High School graduate, Fisher recently moved back to Maine, where he teaches animation at Maine College of Art.
