"ParaNorman," the stop-motion animated feature film currently in theaters, is about a boy named Norman, who can see and talk to ghosts. Norman is charged with the task of saving his town from a witch's curse. His story was brought to life by the talented folks at Laika, the studio which previously brought us stop-motion classic "Coraline." This new movie is a feast for the eyes as well with so much detail in every scene � from the clothes on the puppets to the miniature sets. You leave the theater asking: How did they make that movie?
