Laika + ParaNorman

I watched the stop motion feature film "ParaNorman," a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it. The film had a very solid story with likeable and relatable characters. The fllm came out of the production company Laika which is a stop motion studio based in Portland, Oregon. Laika also produced the well received film "Coraline," in 2009. "ParaNorman" had a unique aesthetic, different from stop motion classics coming from the Aardman Studios. I find it refreshing seeing a new stop motion company in the states have some success after Aardman has dominated stop motion features for a while.
