From LAIKA, the studio behind the hit film Coraline, comes another marvel of stop-motion animation and creative storytelling. For ParaNorman, LAIKA’s team of artists and animators built and brought to life a miniature town, a horde of zombies, and a quirky cast of characters to tell a tale of a boy with spooky talents who must save his hometown from a centuries-old curse. Featuring the amazing and detailed artwork that went into the film’s creation—from character sketches and concept art to puppets, textiles, set dressing, and 3-D printed facial models—The Art and Making of ParaNorman goes behind the scenes to explore the exacting, exciting steps that are achieved frame by frame in this newest LAIKA masterpiece.
Jed Alger grew up in New England, in a town not unlike the one in ParaNorman, minus the zombies. Now he lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
Travis Knight is LAIKA’s President and CEO as well as lead animator on LAIKA’s first feature, Coraline, and producer and lead animator on ParaNorman.
Sam Fell is the director of ParaNorman. Before joining LAIKA, he wrote and directed Dreamwork’s Flushed Away and was the director of Universal’s The Tale of Despereaux. Chris Butler was head of story on LAIKA’s Coraline and is the writer and director of ParaNorman.
