Paranorman

Salma's (Hannah Noyes) Face

Stock #73466

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 Salma (voiced by Hannah Noyes), an academic who over achieves and a friend of Neil Downe (Tucker Albrizzi). Presented with 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 unfortunately features some minor scratches to the colouring of one side of the face. However, in spite of this wear, the item remains in very good production-used condition, with the face measuring 10 cm x 6 cm x 5.5 cm (4" x 2 ½” x 2 ¼”) on its display stand.
