Paranorman

Neil Downe (Tucker Albrizzi) School Play Face A

Stock #73473

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 Neil Downe (voiced by Tucker Albrizzi), the younger brother of Mitch (voiced by Casey Affleck) who becomes best friends with Norman. Neil accepts Norman’s gift and helps stop Aggie’s (voiced by Jodelle Farland) wrath. This face is from the scenes of the rehearsal of a school play where Neil is dressed up as a tree.

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 10 cm x 12 cm x 6cm (4" x 4 ¾" x 2 ½”) on its display stand.
