Paranorman

Courtney Babcock (Anna Kendrick) Blowing Bubblegum

Stock #73475

A stop motion face used in the Chris Butler stop motion film, ParaNorman! In the film, a misunderstood boy named Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee) wages battle against monsters and grown-ups in order to save his town from an evil curse.

This face belongs to Courtney Babcock (voiced by Anna Kendrick), the older sister of Norman. Throughout the film her bond develops with Norman and she is seen blowing bubble gum near the beginning of the film. Presented on a stand, this original puppet face has been 3-D printed in resin, and finished by hand. The colouring of the face is applied during the printing process, enabling consistency between each of the thousands of replacement animation faces that were created for the production. The face would have been attached to the head with magnets to allow animators to quickly replace them to capture the desired expression. The interior of the face also features reference numbers that were used to keep track of the different faces during production.

Lightly used in filming and carefully looked after, the piece remains in an excellent production-used condition, with the face measuring 9.5 cm x 6 cm x 4 cm (3 ¾" x 3 ½” x 2 ¾”) on its display stand.
