ParaNorman is an upcoming 3D stop-motion animated adventure film produced by Portland-based Coraline creators LAIKA, and set to open in theaters tomorrow, Friday, August 17th. Notably, ParaNorman is the first stop-motion movie to use a 3D color printer to create character faces. San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum is currently showing a selection of pre-production character sketches, turnarounds, digital models and the aforementioned 3D-printed character faces. If you enjoyed my behind-the-scenes tour of Tim Burton’s sets for Frankenweenie, you’ll dig this exclusive look at the ParaNorman process.
