Check Out a Bunch of Behind the Scenes Footage from 'ParaNorman'

Looking behind the scenes of live-action films is cool and all, but those kind of featurettes are a dime a dozen. Since there are so few stop-motion animated films, I relish the opportunity to look at any footage showing the sets and painstaking animation process behind films like ParaNorman. Thankfully, the film is just over a week away, and that means some promo footage is making its way online. First, we have B-Roll footage showing the making of many of the characters, sets and animators and voice actors hard at work. But my favorite video comes in the form of a time lapse showing animators crafting scenes frame by frame.

Here's some B-roll footage and a time lapse video for Laika's ParaNorman from Trailer Addict:

Norman, a boy who's able to speak with the dead, has to take on zombies, ghosts, witches and, worst of all, grown-ups, to save his small town from a centuries-old curse. The voice cast: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tucker Albrizzi, Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick, Chris Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin and John Goodman.

ParaNorman is being directed by Sam Fell (director on The Tale of Despereaux and Flushed Away) & Chris Butler (storyboard on Coraline and Corpse Bride). The original screenplay is by Chris Butler. Stop-motion animation studio Laika is producing out of Portland, OR, with Focus Features distributing. ParaNorman is currently set to land in theaters in 3D starting August 17th this summer.
