Performing The Painstaking Production That Is ParaNorman [VIDEO]

Curiouser and curiouser!

We were already super excited about ParaNorman, even before they sent us a zombie to unearth, but seeing some behind-the-scenes production work on the film is making us even more so. I freely admit to always having a fascination with stop-motion animation so ParaNorman is totally up my alley but I’ve never actually seen it being done. Here’s a time-lapse look at just a fraction of what it takes to create the look achieved on the big screen. In theaters August 17!
