I saw a trailer for ParaNorman last week and it just looked like yet another 3D computer generated cartoon. This is far from what it really is. I came across this video about how the creators made the film and I was blown away. It is a stop motion film, meaning that every frame of the film is shot using miniatures that you gradually move and shoot over time. Just watch this video and you will get it.
