San Francisco, CA — The Cartoon Art Museum presents original works of art from the feature film ParaNorman, produced by LAIKA, the Portland-based animation studio owned by Nike co-founder and Chairman Philip H. Knight, and released nationwide by Focus Features on August 17, 2012. Â The exhibition features concept art, puppets, costumes and more from the upcoming film, LAIKA’s second stop-motion animated film to be shot in 3D. Â In stop-motion animation, everything seen on screen actually exists in the real world, as opposed to computer-generated animation.
The first part of this exhibition opens on Saturday, August 11, 2012, and features concept art, a behind the scenes look at the character design of ParaNorman, and an exclusive Animator’s Face Kit, as used by LAIKA’s animators. Â A larger exhibition of puppets and concept art opens at the Cartoon Art Museum on Saturday, October 6, 2012.
