Production Staff Aardman Staff Posted: Mar 7th 2008

Hello, sorry it has been so long since my blog. I seem to catch a different illness every week at the moment!!!! Thank you all for "get well" notes on the blog when I had the dreaded pox!!!!

Well I 'm back now and fighting fit. Today is the first day in ages I haven't had a backlog of work so I'd thought I'd up date you all on what's going on here in Bristol.

We've currently completed 19 shots (almost a minute!!!!) from the opening 3 scenes of the movie.

Lots of new sets arrive each week, one is so big it touches the roof of the studio and it's an internal set!!!!!!!!!!!! Your all going to be blown away when you get to see this stuff!

Over half the story boards and voice records are complete and we ramp up to full crew as of the 24th March.

I'll a chat with the powers that be and see if I can up load any pics to wet your appetites!!

All the best

gromitlove Posted: Apr 13th 2008

Hello and greetings Josephine,
I was just wondering, how does one learn that Wallace plays the banjo?

Mark the shark Posted: Apr 19th 2008

Hi guys!:D

Josephine Posted: Apr 21st 2008

Hello, gromitlove - sorry for the late reply to your good question!

And HELLLOOOO to you, too, Markie Sharkie, old fruit! ;)

Now, and his banjo/guitar... I think it is on the "were " DVD where the Two Almighties - Nick P and Steve Box - are commentating on the scenes that were not used in the final cut of the aforementioned film. There you see the storyboards where is playing the banjo/guitar in the Anti-Pesto van and singing a song.

I hope this helps!

Yours rockin' with the ukelele

Hello Sock Eye! The water looks nice! Care for a dip.

Josephine Posted: Apr 26th 2008



Nice to have you back, Markie Sharkie!

Mark the shark Posted: May 22nd 2008

Thanks Sock-Eye! WAHOO! :D

anti-pesto Posted: Jun 7th 2008

would join you sharky but anti-pesto are protecting vegtables not fish! gromit comes out and it takes ages 2 dry him and wallace is more of an "onshore" person, into his inventions and protection 4 the town.:-(

Mark the shark Posted: Jun 10th 2008

Oh, ok. ;)

jills Posted: Jul 18th 2008

Now it's mid-July I could use that water anytime

How'ya been Josephine?

Howdy, Shark :)

Josephine Posted: Jul 20th 2008

Well a gigantic Howdy-Doo to you, jills! Long time, no hear, petal! Have you been busy-busy???

Oh, I've been busy-busy with one thing and another and have been away from the forum often days at a time as a result but always LOVE squeezing a peek at our beloved website to see how our dear friends are doing!

Chuffed to mintballs to hear from you again, pet! :D hope you are well!
