Back in 2010, I worked at LAIKA ENTERTAINMENT as a Story Artist on a little film called PARANORMAN. Well, 2 years later, that film is finally in theatres! Or at least, it will be starting this Friday, August 17th!

Paranorman was written by Chris Butler and co-directed by Butler and Sam Fell. I was so lucky to get to work on this project and, am INCREDIBLY proud to have been a part of it.

I saw a screening on Saturday and it turned out FANTASTIC! Chris Butler is an animation director to watch, and I can't wait to see what he does next.

Check out some of the great trailers and promotional videos that have been done...

I also worked with an amazing and talented story crew. I learned a lot on this project. You should check out the work of...

Graham Annable
Vera Brosgol
Brian Ormiston
Julian Narino
Michael Schlingmann
Ovi Nedelcu
Emanuela Cozzi

Go see it this weekend. I want to see more movies from LAIKA.
