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.  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.  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.  A larger exhibition of puppets and concept art opens at the Cartoon Art Museum on Saturday, October 6, 2012.
