A very special event featuring a ParaNorman panel.
The event is this Sunday, August 19, 2012.
We are flying in some of the gang from LAIKA including actual puppets used in production! Don't miss out!
There is more than one way to offer a captivating 3D film experience. For LAIKA, the animation studio behind the acclaimed Coraline, 3D involves puppets, armatures, full scale sets and hours upon hours of handcrafted stop motion animation. The studio's long-awaited second film, Paranorman, is now set to hit theatres August 17th.
Nucleus welcomes eight artists from the project offering a rare glimpse behind the process of character design, storyboards, visual development, and armature design. Actual armatures and puppets used in production will be on display for fans to view firsthand. Bring your questions for the Q&A session and meet the artists one-on-one as they sign copies of the new Art of Paranorman book.
