Selick will speak on April 20 about digital technology and how it has helped to revitalize the handcrafted approach of stop-motion animation.

“Coraline,” which opened in theaters Feb. 6, is the first stop-motion animated feature to be shot entirely in stereoscopic 3D. Selick also directed the movies “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “James and the Giant Peach” and “Moongirl.”

The NAB Show will be held April 18–23.
