Meet the Creative Geeks Behind ParaNorman

Paranorman (2012) Movie Behind The Scenes

Check out a very cool behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of Laika’s upcoming “ParaNorman”, which introduces you to the gals and guys that make every second of “ParaNorman” possible. It’s always amazed me that there are people out there who have the patience to do stop-motion animation. So who are these strange, strange people that devote their entire life to making cinema, literally, one frame at a time? People who got shove into lockers back in high school, to hear them tell it. Check it out, check it outers.

When a small town comes under siege by zombies, who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst, of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.

The film features the voices of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Casey Affleck, Tempestt Bledsoe, Jeff Garlin, John Goodman, Bernard Hill, Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jodelle Ferland, and is directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell.

The outcasts rule the world August 17, 2012.
