Anna Kendrick and Filmmakers Talk Animated Movie ‘ParaNorman’
Anna Kendrick is the voice of Courtney in ParaNorman, which is now in theaters! Anna, along with film-makers sat down with the Examiner to discuss the movie.
“I think that spirit comes completely from the passion that the animators have for the characters, and that completely shines through these inanimate objects,” voice star Anna Kendrick told me in a recent interview.
“The animators don’t look at them as inanimate because they literally live with these objects while working on the film. They’re people to them.”
Sam Fell, who co-directed the film with screenwriter Chris Butler, believes the actors share a big part of the credit in bringing the characters to life.
“There are a number of pieces that go into it, like the voice actors, who record the dialogue first,” Fell told me. “So when you get somebody like Anna Kendrick, you’re getting a great actor, and in this case, a lot of great acting comes through the use of her voice. There’s soul in the voice.”
