ParaNorman is a 3D, stop-motion animated film by Oregon-based LAIKA. The animation studio worked with 3D Systems to leverage 3D printing to help the 62 characters display a wider range of emotions – over 31,000 potential faces were made to help the film look more life-like and realistic.

It serves as a great example of how 3D printing will be scaled through the entertainment industry and by future animators. How will 3D printing grow should it deepen its relationship to the production process?

Check out the trailer for the film below:
