This Paranorman Trailer looks like really great stop motion animation and a fun zombie comedy. I really liked the movie Caroline and this is made by the same people so I have high hopes that this will be a great film.
I’m a huge fan stop motion animation, but I’d really like to see a behind the scenes look at how this was done. How much of it was done with traditional stop motion techniques and how much is computer generated graphics.
At least the zombie designs look pretty good. And Check out the rockin poster below.
The stop motion zombies look great. I can only hope that they don’t do Paranorman in 3D as I’m getting terribly sick of 3D. I’m not buying anymore of those stupid glasses. 3D graphics looked moderately okay on Caroline, but the problem is they direct the focus of what you’re looking at. A couple viewings of a movie and I just like to check out the background art. With a 3d movie that’s going to give you a raging headache and since I wear glasses they are a major pain to get on my glorious head.
Also It’s also nice to see supernatural zombies for a change, I’m pretty damned sick of viral zombies and I don’t think viral zombie lend themselves well to a zombie comedy. For some reason horrible diseases that turn people into the living dead just don’t strike people as funny.
Now necromancy and curses, that’s comedy gold! If I could raise the dead I’d do it in a heartbeat.
