Production Staff Aardman Staff Posted: Aug 5th 2008

Hello W&G fans!

I can’t believe it is August already – the time is flying at the moment! After taking a well-deserved production break for a week (you may remember Kate mentioning this last month) the crew down here at Aztec West have been working extremely hard to make sure A Matter of Loaf and Death is delivered on time.

To be precise, we have 9 weeks and 4 days to complete the filming on the studio floor – we have to be finished by the 10th of October to hit our post schedule.

More than half the movie has now been shot now and we're just starting to film the big finale – very exciting stuff! We will be devoting a lot of our crew and studio space to these important scenes, aiming to eventually take up at least half of our 18 shooting units!

As you can imagine, life on the studio floor is very busy. We are doing Saturdays and lots of overtime but the shots are looking great and I can't wait for you all to see the final piece!

All the best

I know i would love to work there!!!:D

I know the production deadline is the 10th of october but when will be able to see it on tv?

Chocachoc Posted: Aug 5th 2008

Im just asking one of the aardman staff this;

What qualifications do you need to become an animator/ model maker working for aardman? (GCSE, A level, International Baccalaureate/ etc)

If you could answer this question (aardman staff) that would be fantastic. I cant find it on the aardman website.

It'll be on BBC TV this Christmas - God willing! No news of a caffeine shortage in Bristol but a parcel full of Fair Trade tea, coffee and dunkable biccies is on standby here Oop North, Beeky, should the hardworking staff need more energy! Pace yourselves, people!!!! Don't rush!!! More haste less speed!!!!!!

We would not like to see a half-baked effort, would we?!

Tee-hee! ;)
