Overview

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.

This book is amazing for any fan of the movie ParaNorman. It is full of behind the scenes info and photos. I personally loved all of the drawings of scenery with details, such as all the things in Norman's room. The character sketches were also great to see. It is an all around amazing book that I highly recommend!

Fantastically interesting, especially for artists, animators or stop-motion enthusiasts in general. ParaNorman is a wonderful movie with a very intriguing production. LAIKA (the studio) has outdone themselves.
