"The Art And Making Of ParaNorman" [Book Of The Month Club]

Most Stop Motion film behind the scenes books do not give you the full on puppet making process that you want.  Well, I can gladly say that The Art and Making of ParaNorman does.  We get to see and in depth look at modeling, fabrication, and of course, the art.  In the 2012 Oscars 3 out of 5 of the animated film nominated were Stop Motion one of those film being in which ParaNorman, it did deserve an Oscar; but if LAIKA can pull it off with The BoxTrolls, then just maybe...

The book is a great behind the scenes look at LAIKA and what goes into making a Stop Motion feature.  Also you get to see the equipment used by LAIKA.  There is an chapter near the end that's basically Sam Fell taking about going onto Google Maps and finding houses that look like Norman's,
which is awesome.  It's a must buy for any Stop Motion enthusiast, and I highly recommend it.  Go buy it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/The-Art-Making-ParaNorman and this will conclude the Stop Motion Geek book review of the month of August.
