Aardman Staff Aardman Staff Posted: Jun 3rd 2008

We are currently working on a number of shots that require visual effects to enhance the animation and action in this film - things we can't possibly achieve on the sets of the film.

We've currently completed work to 59 shots and the scope of the work has included adding everything from flour floating round in the atmosphere of the bakery, to steam coming off bread, to tyre smoke and exhaust fumes coming from the wheels of Wallace and Gromit's van. As the action heats up towards the end of the film, the skills of our Visual Effects artists are really being tested to the limit with some fantastic effects for the finale of the story.

As many of you may know, our visual effects artists also have some seemingly boring tasks in comparison to effects they are creating - such as painting out a rig which holds the character in place while being animated or painting out a join or imperfection in the set. Our artists have got their work cut out for sure!

Way to go, team!!!!! We're confident that you are all on the "crust" of the wave, "jamming" together - no "flan"-nel!
It's bun, bun, bun all the way!

Will Piella sing that song from "Oliver!" called "As Long As He Kneads (Needs) Me"?

:D

I am just thrilled to find out that a new show is in production. Have adored the W&G gang since The Wrong Trousers - Feathers McGraw is just the berries.


Josephine Posted: Aug 7th 2008

Amen to that, razzle!

The berries?! New one on me, friend! Feather's is the cat's knees and the bee's whiskers...

Wait a minute, er, shouldn't that be the bee's......?

Aw, never mind!

jills Posted: Sep 4th 2008

I have a feeling that if there are any imperfections to be seen, they will all be intentional a la Gromit's thumbprinted nose!


amc Posted: Sep 8th 2008


I am in Canada....

when will we get to see the new Wallace and Gromit production?

Will we have to wait until spring for a dvd release?
