LOS ANGELES -– Animation buffs, movie fans, and memorabilia collectors will all have the chance to own unique hand-crafted materials from Academy Award nominee, “ParaNorman.”
The internet auction is coordinated through Profiles in History, the world’s largest auctioneer of original Hollywood Memorabilia, and will begin on Friday, February 22 and will end Monday, March 4.
Proceeds from the auction will go to Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern California.
The auction lot is for two props that were made in-studio and then featured in the stop-motion animated feature.
“The movies that LAIKA and Focus have made together have thrilled and delighted millions,” Elizabeth O’Neil, Executive Director of Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern California, said. “With its anti-bullying theme, ‘ParaNorman’ has proved particularly impactful for kids. We’re so pleased that beautifully detailed and painstakingly created props from this wondrous tale will now be offered for auction to benefit children in need in our community.”
“ParaNorman” was directed by Sam Fell and Chris Butler from an original screenplay by Mr. Butler; and was produced by Travis Knight and Arianne Sutner.
